Visual Studio 2010 Cannot Connect to SQL 2012 or SQL 2008


  • Having worked with Microsoft products since they became a company, I am appalled with the new generation of SQL and Visual Studio.  They are unnecessarily complicated, and I am unable to get them working together.  To make matters worse, I have 'upgraded' my development environment per their instructions, and my entire system is DEAD in the water.  I cannot connect to databases, nothing seems to work, the projects are bloated with installed libraries and other unknown objects.  Having ranted, can someone tell me how to make sense of this spaghetti and get Visual Studio 2010 connected to my SQL databases?
