I installed the latest version, but when I open my projects, nothing indicating that BIDS Helper was installed is represented (i.e: menu options on right mouse click, colors indicating expressions, etc) How can I verify that it installed correctly?

Go to the Help menu... About Microsoft Visual Studio and make sure you see BIDS Helper

If you don't, see if the instructions on this page help you. If not, please post back:

BIDS Helper was not there. I did the xcopy, created the ADDIN folder as such "My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Addins". I copied the addin and .dll into that folder, restarted VB Studio and then nothing. I checked the Help/About and it still was not listed. I went to Options--> Addin/Macro Security and added in the path. I restarted VB Studio but BIDS Helper is still not listed and is still not functioning.

I guess it would help if I downloaded the 2005 version instead of the 2008 version. Thanks for the assist. Everything is working properly.
