I want to use SSIS /BIDS project in Visual Studio 2012.
I have both Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2012 installed along with Microsoft SQL
VS 2010 was installed first followed by MS SQL 2012 which got me BIDS integrated with VS 2010.
However I cannot seem to find any help on integrating BIDS with VS 2012.
I came across few question on SO related to this topic but all of them had integration with 2010 and not 2012.
I know that with MS SQL 2012 I get a SQL Server Data Tool. Does this mean that Visual Studio 2012 and BIDS cannot be integrated ?
I had to update the solution here since one of the answers I received partially solved the issue. The Answer provided by did solve the issue @user2141936 but I kept on getting an BlockMixedArchitectureInstall error while updating an existing instance.
It worked without with creating a new instance!!
Side Note :
Installing the update broken my publishing database project onto 2012 server. You need to download and install a DACFramework patch for it.

Welcome to Microsoft Marketing Speak hell. With the 2012 release of SQL Server, the BIDS, Business Intelligence Designer Studio, plugin for Visual Studio was renamed to SSDT, SQL Server Data Tools. SSDT is available for 2010 and 2012. The problem is, there are two different products called SSDT.
There is SSDT which replaces the database designer thing which was called Data Dude in VS 2008 and in 2010 became database projects. That a free install and if you snag the web installer, that’s what you get when you install SSDT. It puts the correct project templates and such into Visual Studio.
There’s also the SSDT which is the “BIDS” replacement for developing SSIS, SSRS and SSAS stuff. As of March 2013, it is now available for the 2012 release of Visual Studio. The download is labeled SSDTBI_VS2012_X86.msi Perhaps that’s a signal on how the product is going to be referred to in marketing materials. Download links are
- Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 (SSIS packages target SQL Server 2012)
- Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2013 (SSIS packages target SQL Server 2014)
None the less, we have Business Intelligence projects available to us in Visual Studio 2012. And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals
