Yesterday (Monday, Dec 15, 2008) Microsoft released Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005. This release includes an update to the Feature Pack, which includes the DTS Package Designer components for use with SQL Server 2005 Integration Services and SQL Server 2008 Integration Services. (There is NOT a separate release for SQL 2008.) This update fixes some issues that were discovered on Windows Vista and carried over to Windows Server 2008.
To download the updated DTS package designer,
- Visit the SQL Server 2005 Feature Pack Web page for December 2008 at: Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - December 2008.
- Locate and download the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer Components.
These components are 32-bit only. They can also be used on x64 but not on IA64 computers.
