Offical team blog for SSDT, a tool for on and off-premise database development
The September 2013 release has a targeted fix for the Schema Compare error when working with large display text or high DPI. This release will replace the August 2013 release and contains the same bug fixes with this one additional fix. We appreciate your patience while we worked to publish this update.

If you have any questions or feedback, please visit our forum or Microsoft Connect page. We look forward to hearing from you.
Does this fix any of the issues with the SSIS designer?
Thank you for the software.
Are there any .iso link available ?
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.0 Service Pack 1
SQL Server Data Tools v10.3.30618.1
Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1
Windows 7 Professionnal Service Pack 1
I would like to see what has been changed in this release as well.. Anyone?
To those asking for a change list - it's in the first sentence of the post. The second sentence of the post explains that it is the only change in this release.
Please include ISO images in the releases.
Any ETA for releasing the fix for the SSIS designer in VS 2012? I'm working with a large SSIS project now, and it's incredibly painful - between the components jittering and the sequence/loop containers randomly jumping all over the place when dragging, it's nearly unusable.
Yes please add ISO-Files as we cannot run the web setup. We get errors because of the mix of languages (VS is English, PC is German, result is "fatal errors"). Thanks.
Do anyone know, how to fix this solution to the dynamically generated tables/stored procedures?
After starting MS VS 2012 with SSDT and SSDTBI I now get this error message after updating with the september 2013 release above: please advice what to do with that?
"Cannot create an instance of Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data.Tools.SqlPdwExtensions.DisplayItems.PdwChildFactoryBase 1[t] because it is an abstract class. "
This seems to be a massive update for a minor bug. It would be nice if there could be an incremental bug fix, rather than completely reinstalling the entire package!
Please consider putting a link to this blog on the download page. On that page, there is no indication of what has changed, or how to learn what is changed!
Really starting to like Data Tools, however would be cool if they would coordinate with the SQL team, creating TSQL Scripts in SSMS results in scripts that are not liked in SSDT :)
Error 1 SQL71566: Microsoft.Data.Tools.Schema.Sql.SchemaModel.SqlFilegroup cannot not be set on both the Microsoft.Data.Tools.Schema.Sql.SchemaModel.SqlTable and the clustered Microsoft.Data.Tools.Schema.Sql.SchemaModel.SqlPrimaryKeyConstraint.
Looks like the missing-ISOs history repeats itself! :D Well, MSFT, if you forgot my June comments, here you are!
>Guys, you tire me with your idea that on-line installers rules the world. You made that thing for Visual Studio Updates, and now you made it for SSDT updates. Sadly.
SSDT December 2012 was distributed as ISO. VS Update 2 & 3 are available as ISO. Why don't you release SSDT June 2013 as ISO?
And don't suggest me using sluggish "SSDTSetup.exe /layout <destination>". Because SSDTSetup.exe requires Windows Vista (when I run it on Windows XP I've got an error... something like "entry point to FlsFree not found in kernel32.dll"; FlsFree is available on Vista and above).
My working PC has Windows 7 SP1 but it DOESN'T have Internet access. The only PC with Internet access I have is Windows XP PC. Where I CAN'T run your "downloader"! So tell me: why don't you share ISO or something like this so one can download that WITHOUT requiring for Windows Vista! Why I can't _download_ something from OS other than you dictate? Downloading an update on "PC 1" doesn't mean, dear MSFT, that I intend to install it there!
Yes, SSDT is great tool! I agree with comments above. But to distribute it in the way MSFT does -- is real bad idea. Sorry, but I'm fed up with you!

So what's the problem to release ISOs or ZIPs straight away without users moaning?
* I'm still waiting for ISO on this update!
I keep getting "cannot be installed by the windows installer service ... program updated may be missing, or the upgrade may update a different version of the program"
I have VS 2008 and 2010... I really need this as we are changing how we are managing SQL source control.
Microsoft guys, do you have any idea that it is impossible to install these data tools starting from at least 7th of October, 2013? They complain about wrong certificate date. In order to get the job done, I had to set the current date on my PC to the 20th of September. This is ridiculous, you know. Couldn't you make sure that your certificate stays valid long enough at least until you release another update?
