Hi all,

I am getting the following error when I attempt to create a SQL 2000 Database Project:

The application for project '<a location of my disk>\Database1.dbproj' is not installed.
Make sure the application for the project type (.dbproj) is installed


I have CTP4, SQL 2005 + BI, and VS Express C# installed. Any suggestions

Thanks in advance.

Ed

I am getting the same error when installing CTP4.

My configuration is:

OS = Win Server 2003 sp1

VS Team Suite 2005 - full install

SQL 2005 Standard with default installation options.

Ed -

Team Edition for Database Professionals requires Visual Studio 2005 Professional edition or higher SKU. Unfortunately, it will not run on top of the Visual Studio C# Express SKU. I believe that there is a trial version of VS2005 Pro available for download at the same location where you downloaded the CTP4 bits.

thanks,

Okay, John, you may have me stumped. I know Ed installed on top of an Express install, which isn't a supported configuration and will give the error he's seeing. I install the CTP4 bits on top of the suite (full install) myself.

If you don't have a local SQLExpress install, you may also run into issues. You need to go into Tools -> Options, under Database Tools -> Data Connections and specify your a SQL2005 instance name to be used for the design-time validation database. I thought that gave a different error message, but I could be mistaken. If that is set correctly and you are still having trouble, I'll have to ask someone else from the product team to get involved. Perhaps they have additional ideas.

Hi Steve,

Sorry, my original message was a bit misleading. I understand CTP4 cannot be installed on top of VS Express....as a matter of fact, they can't even 'see' each other. The reason I listed Express was to see whether there can be a potential conflict. But having said that, I pretty much answered my own question in that regard since they can't 'see' each other. :)

I find it strange though that I am almost certain it had worked at one point in time just having SQL 2K5 BI and CTP4 installed until I installed VS Express. In any case, VS 2005 Pro or higher was clearly listed in the release note, so I suppose that's the route I will need to take.

Thanks for the help.
