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 Then I discoverd that BIDS (SQL Server Business Intellence Studio) has been replaced by Data Tools (SSDT) in SQL Server 2012...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!!
