I know Windows 8 doesn't support SQL 2005, but has anyone tried to install BIDS 2005 or SSMS 2005 on Windows 8? I'm about to install Windows 8 on my laptop, but given I still maintain a SQL 2005 server I wasn't sure if this would be a problem since 'unsupported' doesn't always mean it won't work.

Thanks -

Regarding SSMS: you can install SSMS 2012 and still manage your 2005 server with it.

This I know, but I have to build SSIS scripts and SSRS reports for a SQL 2005 server which is why I need BIDS from SQL 2005 installed. As far as I know BIDS for each version of SQL isn't backwards compatible with a 'Save As' option to save SSIS scripts or reports to prior versions... would've been nice, but since we still run SQL 2005 and 2008 servers I still have to keep each version installed.

I'm looking at installing Windows 8 on my laptop and given SQL 2005 isn't supported on Win 8 I didn't know if this was just MS saying they wouldn't support any problems that may arise even though it may work fine, or if it just flat out doesn't work.

If it doesn't work, can you set up a VM on the laptop with a prior version of Windows on the VM? Kind of the ultime in backwards compatibility.
