I previously wrote article SQL SERVER – 2008 – Fix Connection Error with Visual Studio 2008 – Server Version is not supported where I discussed how downloading Visual Studio SP1 will fix the error of Visual Studio 2008 connecting to SQL Server 2008. I have provided link to SP1 which was downloading only installer and after that it downloads SP1 component from internet.
.NET Expert Vidya Vrat Agarwal has pointed out that Visual Studio SP1 can be downloaded as ISO. It is really good that now after downloading only one it can be used again to installed SP1 on multiple computers.
