Sequenced SQL Server 2008 R2 BIDS (Visual Studio 2008) error - Invalid license data, reinstall is required RRS feed

  • Question

  • SQL Server 2008 R2 BIDS which is basically Visual Studio 2008 with SP1, gives the same error "Invalid license data. Reinstall is required." as Visual Studio.

    I tried to use this solution http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/appvirtualization/dd334515

    with no success.

    With SQL installer Visual Studio is installed into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0, and there is no way to change that,

    so I copied MavVak2008.dll into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 and registered it. Same error.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hello,

    Two possible steps;

    1. Replace deven.exe with the lower version

    2. Open a case with Microsoft Support to verify that everything is inorder
