Install (upgrade) VS2012 integrated shell RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI, I'm doing BI development. I installed SQL Server 2012 and SSDT-BI 2012. The latter installed Visual Studio Integrated shell. Now, I need to develop a custom extension for Reporting Services in of C#. I know I can't open C# projects using VS2012 Integrated Shell. I downloaded VS2012 update 4 from MSDN but when I want to install the full version if Visual Studio, the only option I get from the installer is to either repair or uninstall VS2012. Is there a way to upgrade or install the full version of Visual Studio 2012 over Visual Studio Integrated shell?

    Thanks,

    Christian

    Hi Christian,

    Did you download the full installation package of VS2012 or just the update package? The stand alone update4 will not install the full VS2012.

    I recommend that you use the full installation package from the Microsoft official site:
