Visual Studio and Azure over SQL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon,

    I am having a basic issue moving from Visual Studio 2010 to Visual Studio 2012.  I have been asked to bring a desktop project over to the Windows 8 'metro' style application for clients using touch interfaces.   First thing I wanted to do was get all of my SQL connections up and going.  

    The only option for that I can see in the server browser is Azure.  I cant add any other options, the Tools from the Studio Gallery didn't seem to answer or fix my issues.  Am I missing something?  Is is possible to connect to SQL servers from a Windows 8 'metro'  application?  Do I have to code the connections by hand for each one?  (its 40 tables in 7 databases)  

    Thank you for any assistance
