Unfortunately I am getting null reference exceptions everywhere and nothing seems to be working

I was getting errors on the load of the new extension that suggested it was looking for SSIS objects. I had installed SSDT only for SSAS and SSRS, omitting the SSIS option. When I went back and updated SSDT (Version: 14.0.61021.0) to include SSIS - it then loaded OK.

Deployment function for SSIS is not there. Should I see the deployment function? Or, will this be added later?

I am getting the object not set error as well when editing an SSAS Tabular model in 1200 compatibility using the workspace server. I am running the Sept update of SSDT. Glad you are making progress. By the way, I wasn't seeing the Tabular Actions Editor in the menu list. Is that being taken out?!AkO8VJGTJRHKgcQStRJQil-o3LAgsQ
