PostPosted: Visual Studio Team System - Database Professionals, RTM Download for Team Suite Subscribers Top

From Gert's blog-

The trial edition image can be downloaded from http://www.hide-link.com/

The full product download on MSDN is a full image only, so 2.9 GB or so, if you already own Visual Studio Team Suite, you can simply download the trial SKU (which is only 20MB) and install this on top of your Team Suite instance. The installer will detect that you have a full license instead of a trial license and do the right thing.

One correction, I believe the full image (not trial) is 3,8 Gigs.

Be aware that there may be an issue when installing with a localised OS (i.e. German OS).  See  http://www.hide-link.com/ ;SiteID=1

I haven't tried it yet but will try to get to it today.

So here's an update -

I have uninstalled CTP7, rebooted (not required but not a bad idea) and installed the Trial download (20 MB) on a box with a German OS, Windows XP SP2 and with an english version of Team Suite.

The entire process went smoothly without errors. The menus are still all in english and a project conversion (from CTP7 to RTM) worked without apparent errors. See the ReadMe 2.4.7 for possible problems with the expected conditions (validation results) in unit test when the OS is not english or the OS of the box running the tests is not the same as the installation language.

As it appears, I can verify GertD's post, the DBP Version was installed and recognised as being a full version (not trial as far as I can see). The ReadMe does however indicate that the MSDN Library for VS must be updated to the new (December) version in order for it to be available. At a first glance it would seem that the chm help files that were part of the CTP's (in the DBPro directory) are no longer there and therefore there are no help files or topics until the MSDN Library is updated.

I assume the same trouble free installation could be had with the trial version of Team Suite, but then DBP will stay as a trial version.

Correct. DBPro on top of team suite trial will be trial as well.

It appears that the MSDN Library is avialable.

It's located in the Visual Studio section where the Visual Studio (non-trial version) install would have been located. It seems the library image may have been inadvertently posted in place of the visual studio image.

Hello Ken,

If you are not Team Suite or DB Professional Subscriber, then you will only have the MSDN Library (12/06 with DB Pro) available in the DB Professional Downloads. Otherwise the SKU Version of VSTE DB Professional AND MSDN Library are available.
