I have installed Microsoft SQL SERVER 2005.

This consists of the Configuration tools(SQL server configuration manager,SQL Error and usage Reporting, Sql Sever Surface area configuration, Reporting Services configuration) and SQL Server Management Studio.

However I dont find SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio.

Can anybody tell me how to install it?

Is it available online as a freeware download?

Please post the link from where I can download it?

Please help me out!

@Ramy, you are right.

Not sure why I was thinking it was in Visual Studios. Its been awhile since I have used it and everything Microsoft just looks and feels the same I guess.


U suppose to install the enterprise edition or standard edition of sql server 2005 in order to get the BIDS. :)
