Good evening all, I have a somewhat annoying issue that I am hoping you can help with.
Due to our back office system being old and running on 2008R2,
I am forced to use BIDS for my SSIS needs which pains me greatly as I am used to using SSDT 2015 with SQL Server 2016.
The issue I have is that when entering variables in an SSIS package in BIDS, there is no option to add expressions in place of values.
I understand that you can change the setting to evaluate as expression in the properties window however this still doesn't cure my issue.

The package starts with a WMI event watcher that polls a folder every 5 seconds for a file matching a set of variables.
When run, the package immediately fails with error 'Invalid parameter'.
I am wondering if there is a step in BIDS that I am missing.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can identify the invalid parameter please?

Enabling logging should be able to give you more information.
