SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio 2008, download and install

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have been looking for a while now on where to download and how to install BIDS 2008 on top of my current SQL Server 2008 installation but no luck yet. Would you mind helping me out please.

    FYI, here is my current configuration:

    - SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server Management Studio installed

    - Visual Studio 2008 installed before the above.

    I've read that I could find a new kind of project (BIDS one) in visual studio but I can't. And from other sources, I should find a link in "All Programms > Microsoft SQL Server 2008 > Business Intelligence Development Studio" but cannot.

     

    Thank you in advance for pointing me to the download page or any kind of post that could help me out getting this.

    Regards,

    J.

  • Which edition of SQL Server 2008 you had installed? Is it SQL 2008 Express? If yes, then make sure you had installed it with Advanced Services: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=B5D1B8C3-FDA5-4508-B0D0-1311D670E336&displaylang=en

    If you had installed SQL Server 2008 from a CD or Media, then you can run the installation media, and make sure you had selected BIDS as an option, along with Management Tools.

    SQL Server Management tools include the following components:

    • SQL Server Management Studio

    • SQL Server Profiler

    • SQL Server Database Tuning Advisor

    • Command prompt tools, such as sqlcmd.exe and osql.exe.

    • Business Intelligence Development Studio add-ins to Microsoft Visual Studio

    Note that Business Intelligence Development Studio is a separate option during SQL Server installation.

    Hope this helps...

  • Hi Chaitanya,

    Thank you for your swift answer, really appreciated.

    I've tried what you've recommended me however I am having troubles with the previous installation so seems I will have to install again everything before getting to that point.

    Will get back to you later on then if I have further problems.

    Bests Regards,

    J.
