Package Configuration File Editor 

Project Description

This utility identifies package configuration paths that are not valid and enables you to correct the paths without having to open the package in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDs).

Package configuration paths can become invalid when packages are moved from development environments to production environments. Typically, people don’t have development/Client tools like BIDS in their Production and this tool targets those environments.

You can load packages into the tool that are stored in SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or in a file system.

In this release of the utility, you cannot do the following:

  • Load packages that are protected by a password (protection level is set to EncryptAllWithPassword/EncryptSensitiveWithPassword).

SSIS 2008 or 2008 R2

Supported Operating Systems

Windows 7, XP, 2008, Vista, 2008
