  • mshah,

    Can I confirm that you have the full version of SQL Server Management Studio installed and not the express edition? As SQL Refactor does not support Management Studion Express at the current time.

  • Hi there,

    I believe the full version of SQL Server Management Studio is only available to download via the MSDN subscription, which has it own download agent that I am afriad I cannot link via.

    Sorry,

    Is the problem that SQL Refactor will not work with the Express edition or is the problem that the installer is enforcing that a full version be their as one of it prerequisites.

    The reason I am asking is because when I installed one of the other tools, it automatically detected that Express was running and installed the "Extensibility for SQL Server Express". Since this is already installed wouldn't SQL Refactor work, if the installer permitted it???
  • Hi there,

    Unfortunately the SQL Prompt team carried out the work required to support SSSMS Express to late for us to include it in SQL Refactor v1.1. SQL Refactor will not work with SSMS Express even if the SQL Prompt add-in is installed. This is why the installer will prevent installation if the full version of SSMS is not installed on your machine.

    We would hope to be able to support SSMS Express in a future version of SQL Refactor, however I cannot give you a release date for this at the moment.

    Kind regards,

  • It appears that MS has removed the SQL Server 2005 Developer edition from the MSDN site. I don't know of another method of installing SSMS on a workstation anymore as only the express edition is availbe for MSDN subscribers now (outside of the standard and enterprise server installations).

    Can anyone describe where on the msdn subscriber site you can get the full version of SSMS that will load on a workstation?
