How do I get the Visual Studio 2012 "Database Explorer" view - I can't find it anywhere on the menu


  • I have Visual Studio 2012 installed(not express). I can always get the "Server Explorer" window up but I can never find out how to pull up the "Database Explorer". Does the "Database Explorer" only come up on attached database files? I can see my database files in the "Server Explorer" but when I click on properties it won't let me do anything. There is no 'open table definition' or 'show table data' menu selections on 'Server Explorer'. How do I get the 'Database Explorer' open?

    System configuration: Windows 7 RTM, Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L motherboard, Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6300 Wolfdale @ 2.8GHz, 4GB PC-1066 DDR2 Patriot Viper Memory, 500 GB Western Digital Hard Disk, "GeForce 8800GT" videocard
