64 bit Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2013

I was trying to install SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2013 on a Windows 2012 R2 machine. I kept getting an “Invalid Architecture” error. I assumed this was because the install is x86 and the operating system is x64.

This strange, and perhaps even silly, trick got things moving along…

Go figure!
