SQL Scripts

SQL Scripts provides access to SQL Server Central's community SQL scripts from within SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) 2005-2014.

SQL Scripts is written as an addin to the SSMS Ecosystem project to integrate with SSMS.

How to build and run SQL Scripts

Based on the instructions for built SSMS Ecosystem's sample addin.

Step 1: Install SIPFramework

SSMS Ecosystem uses SIPFramework to load addins into SSMS. Download and run the EXE installer. SIPFramework hooks into SSMS and is launched whenever SSMS starts. It is responsible for starting your add-in and providing it a clean interface to SSMS.

Step 2: Compile SQL Scripts

Once the NuGet package dependencies have been restored the solution should build. If it doesn't please get in touch.

Step 3: Register the compiled sample with SIPFramework

You need to make an entry in the Registry to tell our SIPframework where to load SQL SCripts from. You should create the registry entry in either:

  • 32-bit machines: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SIPFramework\Plugins
  • 64-bit machines: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Red Gate\SIPFramework\Plugins

Create a new String Value (REG_SZ) with a unique name and set the value to the path of the sample's RedGate.SSC.Windows.Host.dll.

For example: D:\CurrentProjects\SQLScripts\Build\Debug\RedGate.SSC.Windows.Host.dll

Step 4: Start SSMS

You should see SQL Scripts in the toolbar. If not see trouble-shooting an add-in.
