Sorry you're having problems. Can you provide a little more info?

Can you go to Help... About Microsoft Visual Studio... then copy the results and paste them here. Also, please tell us which xcopy filename you downloaded.

Tjomme, it looks like BIDS Helper is actually showing in the About dialog, so I assume it's up and running. Are you getting an error message? If so, what's the error message? Can you try some features and see if you can see any of the BIDS Helper menus or features running?

Tjomme wrote Mar 2, 2012 at 8:25 AM

Hello,

When I go to the Add-in Manager and select BIDSHelper to start at startup and press OK, I receive the folowing error as in the original posting:
The Add-in 'BIDSHelper' failed to load or caused an exception.
Would you like to remove this Add-in?
If you choose yes, the file it was loaded from, 'xxx\BIDSHelper2008.AddIn' will be renamed.

error message: <unknown error>

error number: 80131417

No features are available as BIDSHelper is not loaded.
The options menu is showing, but with the message the options page could not be loaded.

furmangg wrote Mar 7, 2012 at 8:04 PM

Can you look in your Addins directory and right click on each file and look at the Properties and see if any file needs to be unblocked?

I'm getting the same error 80131417 unfortunately. Did the xcopy install of BIDSHelper2008_1_6_3_0.zip on Windows 7 64 Bit, then unblocked all the files in the Addins directory, but no luck.

Can you go to Tools... Options... BIDS Helper... Version and see what it says?

Also, I would try shutting down Visual Studio, renaming the Addins directory, then restarting Visual Studio. I wonder if you already had BIDS Helper installed (not with the xcopy deploy but with the installer). Make sure you don't see BIDS Helper in the Help menu or in the Tools... Options dialog.
