unable to open a dtsx file created on a different server
I'm unable to load the dtsx file in Visual Studio on a different server, the errors are: Error loading load_data.dtsx: Unable to load the package as XML because of package does not have a valid xml format. A specific XML Parser error will be posted. Error loading load_data.dtsx: Failed to load XML due to error 0xC00CE557 "Invalid xml declaration. Line 5, Column 3". This happens when loading a package and the file cannot be opened or loaded correctly into XML document. This can be the result ot either providing an incorect file name to the LoadPackage method or the XML file specified having an incorrect format. Any guidance on this would be much appreciated Thank you

Just to verify. You have installed the SQL Server client tools. Also, what version of SSIS did you develop the package? Russel Loski, MCT

Thanks Russ, a colleague copied one of his soloution and it works. It seems to be something fundamentally wrong with the xml so I will rebuild the dtsx file. Regards Rod
