This is a copy of the final release from the old codeplex site where this project was initially hosted
It contains installers for the old add-in version of BIDSHelper that works with SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008R2.
For versions SQL 2012 or later we recommend using Visual Studio 2015 or later and installing "BI Developer Extensions" from the Visual Studio Marketplace since this version of SSDT is backwards compatible to SQL 2012.
The exe downloads are a self extracting installer, the zip downloads allow for an xcopy deploy which does not require administrator permissions. Make sure to note the updated xcopy deploy instructions for SQL Server 2012 and 2014.
