I have a SQL Server 2012 enterprise Instance and I've been asked to install 'BIDS' on several 32 bit XP Clients.

When I attempted to use my SQL Server 2012 installation media - I couldn't because the media would not run on a 32bit client (surprise surprise)

Made sense so I hit google.. Then I discoverd that BIDS (SQL Server Business Intellence Studio) has been replaced by Data Tools (SSDT) in SQL Server 2012... is that correct?

If that is the case, does anyone know if I install the BIDS on the XP Client will they be able to use it against the SQL Server 2012 instance? Not sure if it is forward compatible.

If it's NOT compatible, I figure my two options are:
stand up a 64 bit Windows 7 client for them and install the 2012 Data tools
Try and get a hold of SQL Server 2012 32bit install media (I suspect this does not exist)

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

SSDT is the new BIDS for SQL2012.

BIDS wont work with 2012 as SSDT is written in VS2010 not VS2008.

Your two options are correct, upgrade to 64 bit machines or get the 32bit install of SQL 2012.

You can run SSDT (based on VS 2010) on a 32-bit machine but it requires Vista or newer.
