How to connect Visual Studio 2008 to SQL Server 2008 CTP?

Annoyed that you can’t use Visual Studio 2008 Server Explorer to connect to a SQL Server 2008 CTP installation? This CTP enables developers to use Visual Studio 2008 with SQL Server 2008 February CTP.

As always… Have fun 😉

    will there be a CTP for developers with a german version of visual studio?

    The CTP only works with an english version of Visual Studio 🙁
