Balanced Data Distributor does not install


  • Hi All,

    We are trying to install the Balanced Data Distributor for SSIS, which is a really cool little transformation written (I think) by the SQLCAT Team.#

    The problem is, that despite having SQL Server 2008R2 Installed, SSIS Installed (Yes, the service is started) and BIDS 08 Installed, when trying to install it on a number of Dev VMs, we get the following error:

    The installation was not successful. Check the following pre-requsits:

    1)Either Integration Services or BIDS has to be installed

    2)The version of these components has to be either SQL Server 2008 SP2 (or furture SPs) or SQL Server 2008 R2 (or future SPs)

    For once, Mr Google has no ideas. Has anybody encountered this, or know of a solution?
