I'm getting this error when I try to create my scripts, Error: FileStream will not open Win32 devices such as disk partitions and tape d
rives. Avoid use of "\\.\" in the path.

Here is the command I am using:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Publishing>SqlPubWiz script -C "Data Source=DEVLX\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=BlackOpus;Integrated Security=True" con.sql

Hi ckim06 -

I believe the error you are seeing is due to the fact that the name "con" is a reserved filename in Windows. Try naming your SQL file something else and see if the error continues. has more information on this quirk of Windows. :)
