I have installed VS 2008 and then i installed sql server 2005 with reporting services. But i couldn't find the Business intelligence projects template in VS 2008. Suprisingly i could find the Business intelligence project template in VS 2005 which
was installed automatically when i installed Sql Server 2005 and there ware no other project types like Visual C# etc.
Please help me/show me a way to get the Business intelligence projects template in VS 2008.

Visual Studio 2008 does not support SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services projects.
"VS.NET itself doesn't support BI project types. They get added to VS.NET when you install the SQL Server client tools. Since SQL Server 2005 client tools don't know anything about VS.NET 2008, nothing gets integrated with VS.NET 2008."
In simple words - SQL 2005 RS used VS.NET 2005, SQL 2008 RS used VS.NET 2008.
