SQL Server Data Tools Installation hangs

04 Jun

If you try to install the SQL Server Data Tools you might have the situation that the installation process hangs on a particular package. You can wait and wait, but the installation process will not continue.
I do not know why this happens, but I got a solution. Cancel the install process via the Task Manager by killing the process. Open the SQL Server 2012 Feature Pack site and download and install/repair the component that suspends the installation process. Then you can retry installing the whole suite.
