Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools - Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 64-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a question about the Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools - Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 add-on that was released on 3/5.  It is only available in x86 on the site now.  I'm looking for the 64-bit version.

    When can we expect the 64 bit version to be released?

    Thanks.

  • hi Bill

    why do you need a 64-bit version ?

    this setup is for Visual Studio 2012 (Shell) which is only 32-bit even if you've installed a 64-bit SQL Server instance.

    just run the setup and select "new instance" and not an existing SQL Server instance and you'll be able to install the BI support in VS2012.

  • Hi Daniel,

    That is a good question...

    I have installed it using 'new instance' as well.  Seems to be ok.

    Thanks for the help!
