Visual Studio 2005 BIDS will not install
Posted on 2013-12-05
My PC environment: SQL Server Environment:
Visual Studio 2005 SQL Server 2005
Visual Studio 2008 Visual Studio 2005
SQL Server 2008
I have VS 2005 SSIS projects that were recently converted up to VS 2008. However, the SQL Server they will run on is using VS 2005. My DBAs get an error when they deploy this package on the server. My assumption is the VS 2008 package will not work with VS 2005 on the server.
Back to my PC. I want to return the VS 2008 package to VS 2005 but I cannot see the BIDS Projects in the new projects options window in VS 2005. The BIDS projects are visible in the VS 2008 version. The goal was to open both versions, create a new project on the VS 2005 side and copy and past the objects back down from the VS 2008....no full rewrite (time is a problem).
1. How can I get BIDS projects to be available in VS 2005?
2. what other options do I have?
