Hi,

We have a DTS package in SQL Server 2005 32 bit and it's running fine. Now I moved the DTS package to SQL Server 2008 64 bit as below:

On Server A, Open the DTS package->Save As->then select the Source SQL Server instance on Server B->click OK.

Then I'm trying to view the DTS package and getting the below:

TITLE: Object Explorer
------------------------------

SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer components are required to edit DTS packages. Install the special Web download, "SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer Components" to use this feature. (Microsoft.SqlServer.DtsObjectExplorerUI)

------------------------------
BUTTONS:

OK
------------------------------


Then I downloaded the SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer components under the heading SQL Server 2005 Feature Pack from the below link on the server where SQL Server 2008 x64 has installed.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/aa336314.aspxComponents for SSIS

But still I'm getting the same error.

Please advice me is there anything else required to view DTS packages in SQL Server 2008 x64?

Thanks

from what I have read I do not believe a DTS is supported in 2008 at all. All Dts's must be converted to SSIS's. That atleast is my understanding.

If only I could snap my figures and have all the correct indexes apear and the buffer clean and.... Start day dream here.

based on the link you provided It looks like this was an after thought. I know I recall reading somwhere pre release that DTS would not be supported but that may just have been a reference to the fact that it does not seem to support it out of the box. based on the info in the article you have to install additional items including the runtime to run a dts.

I had never tried it with 2008 based on my mis guided beleif that support had been removed (which I was fine with) and so I tried to set up support on my local 2008 version with no luck. I also can not get the designer to launch. It just repeats the statement over and over again that I need to install the 2000 designer. I am wondering if this is becuase I also have 2005 installed. when I install the 2000 campatibility there is not option to determine where or what I want to install against. ie my 2005 version vs 2008 version. at any rate I did find a few articles saying I needs to copy some files out of 80 folders into 100 folders but with no luck.

My recommendation from experience is to install the management tools on a client PC (or 32 bit server). You shouldn't need to "manage" the DTS packages from the server itself, rather make changes on the client and save back to the server.

It installs fine on our dektop PCs, or 32 bit SQL 2008 servers, but we couldn't get it working on the 64 bit SQL 2008 server.

DTS works fine in SQL 2008 (we are using several in production). It is just a bit of a pain to manage the packages...

Sorry, to clarify- you can view the x64 DTS packages on your server from a 32 bit client (if you install the management tools).
