DAX Editor does not support SSDT2012


SSDT2012 (11.1.20905.0) apparently is not identified as a supported version of Visual Studio.

From the log:
  • Found installed product - Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Integrated)
  • Found installed product - Global Location
  • Found installed product - ssms
  • VSIXInstaller.NoApplicableSKUsException: This extension is not installable on any currently installed products.
    at VSIXInstaller.App.InitializeInstall()
    at System.Threading.Tasks.Task.InnerInvoke()
    at System.Threading.Tasks.Task.Execute()
Kind regards

The above mentioned problem seems to be related to the existence of "MS Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Integrated)". On computers with only "MS Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Integrated)", the DaxEditor installs correctly.
Kind regards

Thanks Nick. In the meantime, is there a workaround for this issue other than to uninstall SSDT?

Feel free to try DAX Editor on Visual Studio Extensions Gallery It requires additional bug fixes, but it should work in VS 2012.

HI Nick
I'm not having any luck installing to VS 2012/SSDT
When installing the copy at, the VSIX Installer reports "This extension is already installed to all applicable products" yet it doesn't show up in Add-in Manager.
When installing the copy from CodePlex, the installation error reads "This extension is not installable on any currently installed products."
Can you recommend a fix or work-around?
I'm anxious to try the tool. Thanks for your effort with this.

The VSIX installer is the right way to go. It is probably already installed, check 'Tools\Extensions and Updates\Installed' of your Visual Studio.

Easy way to start working with it is to open DAX Editor toolbar. Create a new .DAX document, connect to a model and run queries :)
