Cannot install Business Intelligence Development Studio on Windows 7 Professional

Posted on 2011-05-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I choose to install Business Intelligence Development Studio from the SQL 2008 Standard CD on a Windows Professional 7 workstation.  At the end, the install tells me it failed.

It really gives me no reason, though attached is the log file.

I have tried this on two such workstations, and both installs fail.

How can I get this installed on a workstation?  (I have it installed and working just fine on the WIndows Server 2008.)

    Are you sure is Windows 7 Pro because the summary.txt attached it says Vista and you may not have IIS installed.

    I know that the log says "Vista", but I swear that it is Windows 7.  I saw that the log said that, but Vista is not the workstation's operating system.

    I look forward to addtional responses.

    Hi, you may need microsoft visual studio 8 and the .netframework 3
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 does not support Business Intelligence Development Studio Integration Services, Report Services and Analysis Services projects for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2.
    To work around this issue, you can install Visual Studio 2008 alongside Visual Studio 2010 on the same machine and then open the Business Intelligence Development Studio projects in Visual Studio 2008.
    Always read the recommended and  system requirements first

    So what's in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\20110511_121130\sqlncli_Cpu32_1.log ?
