This new release replaces the existing feed and can be accessed via all of the same avenues that were available for the original CTP4 release. The SSDT team asks that you download and install these refreshed bits, even if you have previously installed CTP4, so that we may gain additional validation of our build-to-build upgrade functionality. The size for this download is only 10 MB if you already have CTP4 installed. If you experience any issues installing this new release with or without CTP4 already installed, please let us know via the SSDT forum (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ssdt/threads).
Features and fixes included in this release:
Selecting a top-level item in the grid now shows script for the selected item and its hierarchical children, with differences between the source and target for each of these highlighted. This feature reduces the need for you to expand nodes in the results grid by showing more information about relevant objects in the script differencing pane.
Some customers have reported an error in detecting the presence of VS2010 SP1 that blocks SSDT CTP4 installation. This issue has been fixed in this release and no further VS2010 SP1 detection problems should exist.
We have made a fix to our logic in detecting supported operating systems. Our supported operating systems are:
Can you please support win 8 dev preview? don't realy care about vs2011, I just want to develop on visual 2010 in my windows 8 laptop.
SSDT will support Windows 8 when it releases to market.
SSDT or Windows 8?
SSDT will support Windows 8 when Windows 8 RTMs. Sorry for the ambiguity in my previous statement.
Yeah I'm trying to install CTP4 right now, and it was from that page.
The installer still cannot detect SP1. Installed SP1 from disc, am trying now using the downloader.
