Using sql-server: SSDT Not Working In Visual Studio 2010 SP1 on newest questions tagged sql-server – Stack Overflow
I’m running Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Premium on Windows 7, and am trying to create SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) Reports. I’ve downloaded the new SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/hh297027 and installed/restarted. If I go into VS Help->About, I can see “Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools 10.3.20225.0″ in the list of installed products. However, SSDT doesn’t seem to be showing up in the “New Project” window, and if I try to open existing SSRS 2005 reports projects (created in BIDS/VS 2005) it says “‘Reports.rptproj’ cannot be opened because its project type (.rptproj) is not supported by this version of the application. To open it, please use a version that supports this type of project”.
Am I incorrect in my impression that VS/SSDT does not require SQL Server being installed? Is there some other software, package, or step that I’m missing in installing SSDT?
