The Microsoft Business Intelligence Indexing Connector free download was removed from the download site. Customers who have downloaded the Business Intelligence Indexing Connector as of March 2011 will continue to be supported as per standard support procedures. However, Business Intelligence Indexing Connector will not be tested or supported for SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 1.

This article describes how to install and configure Microsoft Business Intelligence Indexing Connector (front end). This article does not show how to install Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.
