I've asked Compuware whether this would be part of TestPartner, and they've said NO. However, I have had zero problems running queries in SQL 2008 databases via TP, nor have I had any problems with my TP database hosted in SQL 2008 using TP 6.2.0.
The problem occurs when displaying the TP Result summary tab do to a change in MFC and the HTMLFrame control. It will cause TP to crash if SQL 2008 is installed on the machine running TP. This should be fixed in the current SP for TP 6.1.
