An incompatible DacFx version is installed

When trying to connect to a SQL Server Database using Visual Studio 2012, I was welcomed by the following error message:

clip_image002

I recently installed the SQL Server Data Tools – BI package which is not the same as the SQL Server Data Tools itself(always fun to use confusing names). This seemed to have messed up my Visual Studio Installation. Luckily you can fix it by installing the latest version of the SQL Server Data Tools – October 2013 Update.
