Which to install first, VSTO or SS 2005 Developer??

I have Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) and the SS 2005 Developer
that comes with it, all of which I can install on my local XP box.

1. Which one do I install first, VSTO or SS 2005 Developer??

2. Regardless of which one is installed first, what's the best way
after that to move or copy database objects like tables, queries,
reports, etc. from the XP/developer box to an SS 2005 Server??

Thank you, Tom

It should matter, I think, but I would install SQL Server first.

Depends on what the purpose of the copying is, but assuming that the
other box is a production machine, it is my opinion that all source
code should be under version control, and all deployment should be
performed from the version-control system.

From what I have read, VSTO is the tool if you are planning on developing an Office Application, but only if it is Excel, Word, Outlook or InfoPath and

Most of my projects are developed in Access 2003. I have not even installed Office 2007 yet! I need to buy VSTO to get the run-time licence for Access 2003. No doubt I will soon need a run-time licence for Access 2007. Is there a version of VSTO that has the Access run-time licence for both version of Access? Or will I need to buy VSTO 2003 now and then VSTO 2007 at a later date? Thanks,
