Trying to modify a past Visual Studio project to VS 2022

I have an old Visual Studio 2013 solution and I want to upgrade to VS 2022.

My problem is there are no replacements for the following Namespaces: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management, and Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.

My solution depends on certain processes contained in those two namespaces. What do I use to restore functionality so I can run my project under VS 2022?

Thank you,

    The Microsoft.SqlServer.Management and Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo namespaces are not included in Visual Studio 2022 by default, so you'll need to add them manually to your project in order to restore functionality.

    Here are the steps to add these namespaces to your project:

    Install the Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlManagementObjects NuGet package: Open your project in Visual Studio 2022 and go to the "Tools" menu, then select "NuGet Package Manager" and "Manage NuGet Packages for Solution". In the "Browse" tab, search for "Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlManagementObjects" and install the package.

    1. Add the using statements for the namespaces: In your code, add the following using statements at the top of your source files:

    using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo;

    using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common;

    1. Update any code that uses the namespaces: Depending on how your code uses the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management and Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo namespaces, you may need to update it to work with the newer version of the namespaces. Check the Microsoft documentation for the new namespaces to see if there are any changes that may affect your code.

    After completing these steps, you should be able to build and run your project in Visual Studio 2022 with the restored functionality from the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management and Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo namespaces.
