VSTS for database professionals installation requirements

A lot of users feel confused about the installation requirements of VSTS for DB Professionals (DB Pro).

"Team Suite or other product must be installed before Db Pro" as the ReadMe file says.

The requirements of VSTS for Database Professionals are:

  • Visual Studio Professional Edition/Visual Studio Team Suite. Team Edition for Database Professionals is available as a separate product; however, to evaluate the Team Edition for Database Professionals Trial you must first install the Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite 180-Day Trial.
  • The Visual Basic or C# language feature must be installed.
  • MSXML must be installed.
  • Visual Studio Professional Edition is included on the DVD for Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals.
