Hi all,

Can anyone please tell me how to disable Sql Prompt 4 from within Visual Studio 2008 (VS2008)?

Sql Prompt is great in SSMS but if I'm debugging a procedure from within VS2008 it just gets in the way. I'm aware I can temporarily disable it from the menu but I really would like to remove its functionality completely from VS2008.

    Thanks for your post David.

    You can do the following to ensure that SQL Prompt will not re-appear in the menu for VS upon startup:

    1) Open up VS and go to Tools > Add In Manager
    2) Uncheck SQL Prompt both as an available add in and startup, click ok
    3) Go to Tools > Customize
    4) Drag the SQL Prompt menu icon away from the menu bar, and it should disappear.
    5) Restart VS, and SQL Prompt should be gone from there, but not SSMS

    Kindly let me know if this fixes the issue.
