Installing SSDT for SQL Server 2014 CTP2

Today I've installed SQL Server 2014 CTP2 and it seems working pretty fine. But, hey where is SSDT? The replacement of BIDS? I already found out (in one of my former blogposts) that there are 2 versions of SSDT that belonged to SQL Server 2012: SSDT Database developer and SSDT Business Intelligence. But now I can't find anything in the installation procedure about BIDS or SSDT and neither after the installation in the menus, panes or whatever.

There are different downloads available of SSDT on Microsoft.com. I tried multiple versions of SSDT and it seemed troublesome. I tried the different versions multiple times and errors occured. Grrrrrrrrrr. Below a couple of versions and there are differente sizes of the downloads.

And googling SSDT gives me confusing downloads. On the blog of Koen Verbeeck you can find more information about this strange situation. He is also confused about the SSDT situation. But Koen helped me further understanding the problem.  On the blog of Jamie thomson more information is found. Here is some information on the SQL Server Data Tools Blog.

As it seems to me you need to install the following software:

  1. SQL Server 2014 CTP
  2. Visual Studio 2012
  3. Update software for SSDT and SQL Server 2014 CTP2

You can download the correct version od SSDT 2012 here. The total amount of software to download is about 800 MB(??). Don't bother the titles of the windows during the installation steps :"Installing SQL Server 2012".

And there's more software needed for the installation...


The templates are installed...

According to the blog of SSDT (SQL Server Data Tools Blog.) a new version or a upgrade version of SSDT for SQL Server 2014 is available. So I decided to install this one too and it seems to be working.

Here you can see some information about SQL Server 2014 during the installation steps.

The installation went well and a confirmation can be found in the Help-About window of visual studio

The version of SSDt for SQL Server 2014 is 11.1.31024.0

I think that the installation procedure isn't quite ready at this moment and that Microsoft is working on it. Hopefully there comes an end to the confusion about SSDT.
