    Hi All,

    I'm using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (MS VS 2008) version, and when I've been trying to open a particular SSIS package (.dtsx file), it's returning me a "Microsoft visual studio has encountered a problem and needs to close." error. I'm able to open other packages up fine. I've even tried to replace my local copy with another from our version control system, but no good. Any advice on how I can resolve this issue? Thanks in advance!

    Does the package contain any third-party components? Eg, file watcher, Cozyroc  etc ... and if so, do you have the components installed on the problematic machine?

    If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

    Thanks for your reply, Phil. I don't have any 3rd party components installed. It's the strangest thing...the error has ceased for now...hopefully won't have to revisit this. Thanks for your input!
