Hi Zilot,

Thanks for your post. Could you please attach a screenshot of the About dialog of SDE-VS?

Also, would you mind to have a search in About dialog of Visual Studio for installed product to see if there exists SDE (as my attached image)? Please also attach your About dialog of Visual Studio. Thanks in advance!

Hi Zilot,

Thanks for replying and the screenshots. Could you please try to uninstall VP Suite 3.4 and delete the VP installation directory from your hard disk, then try to re-install the software again to see if your problem persists?

Best regards,

Hello Wong

I uninstalled VPS and then installed just SDE without DBVA for visual studio, and now there is Instant Generator and in about window there is SDE. Tell me is it now complete environment for DB application development, seems DVBA overwrites SDE setup when it is enabled.

Hi Zilot,

Thanks for replying and I’m glad that the problem is resolved. Please be reminded that in the same machine, you can either install SDE for Visual Studio (SDE-VS) or DB-VA for Visual Studio (DBVA-VS) on Visual Studio. This will lead conflicts between SDE and DB-VA and both products will not work.

And even if you have both Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 installed, you can install SDE (or DB-VA) on either one of them.

BTW, SDE Professional Edition for Visual Studio covers all features in DBVA-VS (except Java/PHP ORM code generation that is supported in DB-VA Professional Edition for Visual Studio), so if you are evaluating our products, you can simply install SDE Professional Edition for Visual Studio.
