Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals CTP 5 Out

2006/08/23

If you aren't aware, the Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals CTP 5 is available for download. It's a significantly larger install package than CTP4, going from 30 MB to 120 MB.

Team System for Database Professionals CTP 5 Download

As with the other CTPs, you have to uninstall any previous Team System for Database Professionals install before installing CTP 5. When you run the downloaded .exe, it'll tell you that and then prompt you for a location to extract the .exe file to.

If you have projects from previous versions, they won't work with this latest CTP. From the Readme.doc that extracts:

2.2.2.   Compatibility with prior CTPs

If you have database projects that you created using a prior CTP of Team Edition for Database Professionals, you cannot open them using CTP5. To implement new features, some breaking changes were required in the file formats for database projects, data generation plans, and database unit tests.

Also, it will install a default instance of SQL Server Express if you don't already have one installed. There isn't an option in the installer to not install it.
