SQL Server 2012 SSIS – Why is my toolbox empty?

By Patrick LeBlanc, 2011/10/13

So recently I was doing a demonstration using the new SQL 2012 SSIS running in Visual Studio 2010. I needed to open my toolbox, of course I went to the menu bar selected View > Toolbox. To my surprise the toolbox was completely empty.

What the #$%#? What to do? Well it’s actually pretty simple. Located on the top right corner are two icons. The first opens the variables window and the second opens the SSIS TOOLBOX. Nice, I like it.

If your toolbox is empty, don’t worry it’s just one click away.

As always, if you have any questions or comments about this post please email me at

Talk to you soon,
