  • Hi,

    Your issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses the usage of Visual Studio IDE such as WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    Based on your description, I feel VS2010 shell was not installed successfully when you installed SQL Server BI templates, right? If this is that case, I suggest you consult your issue on SQL Server setup forum: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/home?forum=sqlsetupandupgrade for better support.
