Business Intelligence Visual Studio 2005

First install Visual Studio 2005. In order to get BI follow these steps:

1. Run Add/Remove Programs

2. Run 'Change' for just the SQL Server 2005 component.

3. Select Common Components > Workstation Components.

4. Click "Remove Microsoft SQL Server" (yeah, it's really OK).

I can then run SQL 05 setup and select the "Management Tools" components from the Client Tools section of custom setup, giving me Management Studio but leaving all the VS2005 + VS2008 SQL components in place. 

5. SQLEXPR_TOOLKIT installs BI plugin to Vistual Studio 2005 

* You don't need to have SQL Server 2005 installed.
