Some Problem In SDE-VS in newer Version SDE 4.4

I am using VP Suite 3.4 SP2 When i Run SDE-VS, Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Loaded and I get an error “command Tools.StartSDEVS is not Valid” and if i open project in VS2008 SP1 there is no available option in Solution Explorer for SDE-VS.
I am Currently using Vista Ultimate SP1 32-bit
Can anyone give me a solution of this problem

Hi user,

Thanks for your post. Do you mean you did not see the option “Open SDE-VS” when right-click on project inside Solution Explorer?

If you cannot see that option, could you please open the About dialog of Visual Studio to see whether you have “SDE for Visual Studio” among “Installed products”? You can refer to the attached images for what I mean.

Hi LilianWong,
I have the same problem. My OS is vista home edition.
I have installed SDE-VS, but I cannot found “SDE for Visual Studio” in VS2008 “Installed Products” :frowning:
Do you know why?

Hi user,

Thanks for your post. Could you please capture a scresnshot of About dialog of Visual Studio for me to take a look? Thanks in advance!

Also, could you please try to run “VP Suite.exe” to see whether the option “SDE for Visual Studio (SDE-VS)” is available for installation?

Best regards,
Lilian Wong

Hello,

I just installed the community version of SDE for VS 2008.

I have two issues.

  1. When I try to run SDE, it tries to start the version of VS 2005 installed with SQL 2005, even though I specified VS 2008 (Standard Edition).

  2. No reference to SDE appears in either 2005 or 2008. I cheked the about screen, and even tried to add the application to VS 2008 manually as an external tool, but it still tries to load VS 2005.

Please help.

Thanks.

Hi Srwebdveloper,

Thanks for your post. Could you please try to uninstall VP Suite and remove the VP Suite installation directory from you hard disk, and the try to install SDE for Visual Studio again?

Please ensure that you select Visual Studio 2008 during the installation.

Best regards,
Lilian Wong

Hello,

I have the same error message like srwebdeveloper but it does not help if I uninstall the VP suite and install only the SDE choosing Visual Studio 2008.

Do you have any other idea?

On my computer I have Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition and Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition.

Best regards
Dieter

Hi Dieter,

Thanks for your post. We are sorry that we only support Standard Edition or above of Visual Studio .NET 2003 or Visual Studio 2005/2008 (i.e. Express Edition is not supported). You can try to uninstall SDE for Visual Studio (SDE-VS) by VPSuite/uninstaller/uninstall_sdevs.exe, then run VPSuite/bin/VP Suite.exe to install SDE-VS on Visual Studio 2005.

Hope this helps. If there is any further inquiry, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,
Lilian Wong
