Default Database Publishing Wizard

I am trying to get to the Database Publishing Wizard. I have my project loaded in VWD, Database Explorer open, right-clicked PlanetWrox.mdf, but "Publish to Provider" is not an option.

Any ideas on this?

Where do you right-click? In the Database Explorer? Or in the Solution Explorer?

In the Database Explorer. Available options are Refresh, Delete, Modify Connection, New Query, Rename, and Properties.

That's strange... So you're not seeing what is described here?

http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archi...nt-part-1.aspx

When you choose File | About (or about Visual Studio) what version of VWD is it reporting in the Installed Products list?

Not seeing what is described there.

Version 9.0.30729.1 SP

Is it possible that the Publisher Wizard was not installed? Should I be seeing it in my list of installed programs in ADD/REMOVE Programs?

I found this possible solution in the internet. However I do not have this file. Should I have the file noted below?

In the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Publishing\1.2 folder there is a file called VSInt.reg. Execute this file so it adds to the registry, restart Visual Studio and you should be up and running!

What version of SQL Server do you have installed? The file you're referring to is part of SQL Server and contains the following:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VWDExpress\9 .0\Menus]
"{40d75537-ce10-4311-a7b0-6b164d80405d}"=",1000,1"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio \9.0\Menus]
"{40d75537-ce10-4311-a7b0-6b164d80405d}"=",1000,1"

I am running SQL Server 2008. As I said, I don't have that file, so it makes me think that Database Publishing Wizard is not installed.

As far as I know, it's not an optional item; it just gets installed when you install VWD and SQL Express together.

You could try reinstalling VWD and SQL Express, or you could contact Microsoft support and get help from them. Something is definitely not in order.... ;)

I was afraid that you were going to say that. You may have forgotten how many times I have had to reinstall VWD and SQL Server. :-(
