Data Connection to SQL Server 2008 not allowed
8/6/2007 5:03:16 AM
I guess that it's under development, but just in case... SQL Server 2008 connections are not supported on VS2008 Beta2.
Visual Studio Code Name "Orcas" (Beta 2)
Windows XP Professional
Operating System Language
if I try to add a data connection to SQL Server 2008 I get the following error:
Microsoft Visual Studio
This server version is not supported. Only servers up to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 are supported.
VS2008 should Support SQL Server 2008
TAP Code (if applicable)

Last week a Visual Studio 2005 patch was released to support the SQL Server 2008 November CTP. Here are the download links:
1. SQL Server 2008 CTP, November 2007
2. Visual Studio 2005 Support for SQL Server 2008 (CTP)
We plan to release a similar patch for Visual Studio 2008 in the near future, thank you for your patience. Try out the new patch and feel free to let us know if you run into any issues or have any questions.

Thanks for the feedback. In current Community Technology Preview versions, Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (“Katmai”) databases do not connect. We plan on enabling the connection between Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2008 by the September/October timeframe and Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 20008 in Q1 of 2008.

It is a restriction "manually" set by the developers as the testing has not been finished yet.
...there is a way around meanwhile though ;)
Choose following when you set the Dataconnection:
Data source: Microsoft SQL Server
Data Provider: .NET Framework Data Provider for OLE DB
Like that you "trick-out" the vality check.
The rest is just like always.
