Data Dude CTP has been released

Very cool, the Data Dude CTP has been released. Data Dude is an integrated development environment for SQL Server 2005, setting on top of Visual Studio 2005 Pro or higher. First you must install MSSQL Developer or Enterprise Editions, and then stop all services before installing data dude and the redistributed SMO (previously called DMO).

Looks like someone forgot to do a clean system install test. The Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools namespace appears to not be on my system, so the integrated test project templates won't compile.

CTP6 installs the redist of SQL Server SMO, this dependency is will be removed in the final release. When installing, make sure that all application using SMO are closed, preventing the necessity for a reboot after install
