Configuration Editor in SSIS 2012

Our org would be upgrading to SSIS 2012 soon. I was wondering if this utility could be used for Sql 2012 packages as well? We have been using this utility to correct configuration entries after switching environments and would typically like to use it when we move on to SSIS 2012.

Robcompmind,

SSIS 2012 introduces and encourages the use of "parameters" for configuring package properties. While the orthodox configuration files are still available, but for that you've to choose the old "Package Deployment Model" and won't be able to take advantage of the new SSIS models.

The question to your answer is No, this utility won't work with SSIS 2012 where I would highly encourage you to use "Project Deployment Model" and "Parameters".

HTH!
