  • Hi Sachin_01,

    Visual Studio Setup and Installation is to talk about the installation and setup of visual studio, your thread is more related to visual studio general questions, I will move the thread to to get professional support.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Sachin_01,

    Like this document here:

    You can use the Database Diagram Designer to update databases in SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, and SQL Server 2008 R2. However, SQL Server 2012 doesn't support this feature.

    I also test it in my side using VS2015 with update 3, it really has no the Database Diagram folder.

    The SSMS should have that option.

    Best Regards,
