MSDN Analysis Services 2012 Tutorial and AdventureWorks Codeplex files Re-Pointer

Posted by
I believe that the MSDN Analysis Services tutorial and AdventureWorks files on Codeplex aren’t quite matching up.
For the tutorial ‘Using a Modified Version of the Analysis Services Tutorial Project’ (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms166582.aspx), the reader is instructed to download the file ‘SSAS Multidimensional Model Projects SQL Server 2012.zip’

The reader is directed to ‘Browse to the Lesson 4 Start folder’ but this isn’t contained in ‘SSAS Multidimensional Model Projects SQL Server 2012.zip’

Instead, you find the folder ‘Lesson 4 Start’ in ‘Analysis Services Tutorial SQL Server 2012.zip

I hope that helps someone to get five minutes of their life back 🙂

  1. Thank you. Microsoft really needs to fix this. They removed the file you point to from the downloads list on the page their tutorial page points to.
