File contains corrupted data.

Based on this docs link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/fin-ops-core/dev-itpro/database/import-database, download the .NET CORE version of SqlPackage.exe.

This is the .zip file that can be extracted to C:\Temp\Sqlpackage-dotnetcore

From there, instead of using the Sqlpackage.exe under C:\Program Files (x86), use the Sqlpackage.exe in C:\Temp\Sqlpackage-dotnetcore.

Command will be:

C:\Temp\Sqlpackage-dotnetcore>SqlPackage.exe /a:import /sf:D:\Exportedbacpac\my.bacpac /tsn:localhost /tdn:<target database name> /p:CommandTimeout=1200
