like this Mike person is trying to access a SQL Server 2012 database using SQL Server 2008 tools.
Nope; as you can see in the original thread, this is about using Visual Studio to manage SQL Server databases, not abut using Management Studio. And if I am not mistaken, you can use SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 to manage a 2012 database.

Microsoft dropped some database management support in VS 2012 when connecting to SQL 2012; that's the real issue here, which can be worked around by using SQL 2008, or by using SSMS.
