Currently there is no plan to release a 64-bit version of SSDT-BI. If there is a significant business need, please create a new Microsoft Connect request.

Is there going to be a version available for 64bit? This update for SSDT only works on x86.

On March 6, 2013, Microsoft released SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 (SSDT BI) templates. With SSDT BI for Visual Studio 2012 you can develop and deploy SQL Server Business intelligence projects. Projects created in Visual Studio 2010 can be opened in Visual Studio 2012 and the other way around without upgrading or downgrading – it just works.

The download/install is named to ensure you get the SSDT templates that contain the Business Intelligence projects. The setup for these tools is now available from the web and can be downloaded in multiple languages right here:

The delay in this is beyond annoying. I had a solution in TFS where I have all my projects, SQL DB, Test Project, CLR Project etc.. all in one solution. To upgrade to VS2012 and SQL2012 and not be able to open my solution in VS2012 is very frustrating. Back to VS2010 for us :-(

Seriously, this is big problem. When are the BI project types going to be released?

SQL BI Projects are part of SQL Server and consequently SQL DB Projects are part of Visual Studio. Logic, right :D.
(wonder what they smoke)

BIDS and the BI project templates are part of sql server, not of visual studio. SQL Server 2012 uses the VS 2010 shell and VS 2012 versions of the templates are not yet available, but will be in due time.

Look here for comments by the dev team:

This would seem to be identical to One more version down the same road.

Oops, looks like I'd installed professional.

Same issue here.
Clean VM Windows 7 64bit,
Installed VS2012 developper edition=>no reporting service, or anything, just 'database project'
Should some parts of SQLServer 2012 be installed first?

Why does an upgrade remove features?
