Hi,
I have windows 7 Enterprise, SQL 2005 Standard with SP3.  When I click to start BID, a pop up dialog say there is compaitility issue with "visual studio 2005" and wants me to down load sp for vs 2005.  Well, the problem is I have Visual Studio 2005, .net 3.5 on my PC.  I want to use SSIS to create a package.  How can I get pass this so it knows I have vs 2008 and use that instead?  Thanks.

Just open up VS 2008 and choose to create a new project select Business Intelligence Project and the type of project you want to create.

I selected Other Project Types and there is only a DATABASE project.  I double click to search online for new templates and it returns nothing.  Thanks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I believe the BIDS project would still be included with the 2008 SQL Express as well.

Right, I have sql 2005 standard installed but my VS is 2008.  So, the sql 2005 is looking for VS2005 for BID.  Any way around this?  thanks.

hmm. ok. got it.

The following link seems to point to the answer. Unfortunately not a very acceptable one.
Visual Studio 2008 Will NOT Support SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services projects (until you install SQL Server 2008)

Even though it says Reporting Server projects, I believe that includes the realm of business intelligence projects (SSIS, etc)

Thank you.  At least now I know what are my limitations, even though there is no work around.
