BIDS 2008R2 and DENALI Side by Side not working.

Today I've installed DENALI as named instance side by side with 2008R2 on my dev machine to take a look on the new features. After installation the SSIS projects stops working in BIDS with message **Project type (.dtproj) is not supported by the version of applicatioin.** Took a look around and found that the BIDS of DENALI doesn't support side by side with 2008 as it still uses VS2008 shell and in future relases it should be replaced by VS2010 shell. I'm posting it here to save you trouble. It's a pitty, that it's not mentioned on the download page or pages related to DENALI. A few links about the problem: [ http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqldenintegrationservices/thread/4667d98f-e963-4b91-b096-8533805bcf08][1] [ http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/815eb137-7094-40c0-a6f4-d992edbe3a65][2] [1]: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqldenintegrationservices/thread/4667d98f-e963-4b91-b096-8533805bcf08 [2]: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/815eb137-7094-40c0-a6f4-d992edbe3a65

My very first post on Denali was a setup walk-through, and I mentioned this issue: [ http://sqlblog.com/blogs/aaron_bertrand/archive/2010/11/09/sql-server-11-denali-setup-walk-through.aspx][1] You're right though, it's a shame it isn't in the release notes or elsewhere (at least that I could find, when I looked). In my case I don't use BIDS but I typically would recommend installing Denali (and just about any beta software, really) in an isolated VM as opposed to trying to jam it into other critical work.
