Dot Net 4 Runtime

In order to use the import and export services of SQL DAC, you will need the .NET 4 runtime installed. You can obtain the .NET 4 installer from the following link.


Install the following five SQL Server redistributable components on your machine. The only ordering requirement is that SQLSysClrTypes be installed before SharedManagementObjects.

1. SQLSysClrTypes.msi
2. SharedManagementObjects.msi
3. DACFramework.msi
4. SqlDom.msi
5. TSqlLanguageService.msi

Deployment Notes

Side-by-side installations with SQL Server “Denali” CTP 1 are not supported and will cause users some issues.   Later editions of Sql Server "Denali" (when available) are supported.

Installations of SQL Server 2008 R2 and earlier will not be affected by these CTP components.
