I'm trying to install SQL 2012 developer, full install, as an instance on my Dev box. I already have VS2010 and SQL 2008 (including BIDS). During the "Setup Support Rules", one of the rules that shows "Passed" reads "Previous releases of SQL Server 2008 BIDS". Clicking the link shows the dialog stating, "SQL server 2008 BIDS is not installed".
As stated before, not only is it installed, but I use it regularly for support of our data warehouse project.
What is the story with 2012/2008 BIDS compatibility and why is the test passing incorrectly?

This rule actually refers to checking for BIDS components that ships with Visual Studio 2008, it requires them to be at VS 2008 SP1 if they are installed

You could perform a side-by-side installation of SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2008. If you are a developer, you may have some issues with BIDS.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 does not support Business Intelligence Development Studio Integration Services, Report Services and Analysis Services projects for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2. To work around this issue, you can install Visual Studio 2008 alongside Visual Studio 2010 on the same machine and then open the Business Intelligence Development Studio projects in Visual Studio 2008.
