Thanks for your patience. We've just published BIDS Helper for SQL 2016 and Visual Studio 2015 in the Visual Studio Gallery:

Please give that a try and let us know if you have issues.

Looks like one of the recent monthly updates changed one of the undocumented APIs that we need to call for most of the tabular features. I'm working on a fix for this.

Same error after applying updates to VS 2015.

Any progress on this one? Without Display Folders we are going to find SQL 2014 Tabular pretty much unusable.

Sorry to have to nag a voluntary project to fix what is an awful omission by Microsoft but we are on static licences so upgrading to 2016 is an expensive option.
