As of 5-mrt-2013, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 supports SSIS projects by installing
Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012
You can download Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 at:
On installation I got the following error:
SQL Server Setup could not search for updates through the Windows Update Service.
Well I just ignored that en clicked Next.
Than I got the error:
Rule "Same architecture installation" failed.
The CPU architecture of installing feature(s) is different than the instance specified. To continue, add features to this instance with the same architecture.
This was caused by selecting "Add features to an existing instance of SQL Server 2012" instead of "Perform a new installation of SQL Server 2012", this is the right option.
As mentioned on the installation page:
On the Installation Type page, verify Perform a new installation of SQL Server 2012 is selected, and then click Next.
Setup will not install a new instance of SQL Server 2012 Server, but will install new SQL Server Features, including SQL Server Data Tools- Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012,
which you will select on the next Feature Selection page.
