BIDS 2008 hanging when opening package

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Ideas are extremely welcome here.

I have a fresh install of windows 7/64, sql 2008 sp1, visual studio 2008 sp1. Fresh as of last week. BIDS installed just fine - nothing to worry about there. Everything was working fine with my packages and then suddenly now they practically won't open.

If they decide to open I get the nice little "Visual Studio is busy - if you encounter this problem often please report this to Microsoft" error in my tray while it's trying to open. So I wait. And finally it will open but I can't do anything. On all of them DelayValidation = True.  It does this both on "Work Offline" and "Work Online". And thing is they were working just fine. I imported them into a new project. Same deal.

When I restart my computer and try to open them again I get the same response. I've nuked my suo file before opening every time. Same deal though. I don't have any addon installed (no resharper - no bids helper).

Visual Studio isn't pegging the processor or ram - just what I normally would see.

Is there some magic setting that I need to flip to make them work again?

SSIS 2005 & 2008 BIDS and VS2005/2008 Will VS2010 work with either SSIS package?

I've read the old posts about having to have the BIDS version match the SSIS package version. My question is with VS2010 is there any change? Can I edit either of the old versions of SSIS packages in VS2010 or do I have to have 3 versions of Visual Studio/BIDS on my machine? TIA J

BIDS Error loading 'Package.dtsx' in 2008


So everything was working grand. I had both SQL2005 and 2008 installed and were working together just fine. Then I installed 2008R2. And everything was still fine minus the fact that I couldn't run anything with the dtexecui.

I have 2 computers that mirror each other in what's installed on them. SQL2005/2008/R2 were installed on both of them. Then when I started having package issues, I uninstalled R2.

Computer A works fine. After I uninstalled R2, I reinstalled the components from the sql2008 disk and packages work/open/run with dtexec/ui

On Computer B (which is the more important one of course) I get this error when trying to open a package (in bids).

Error    4    Error loading 'Package.dtsx' : Could not load type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper.IDTSPackageSigning100' from assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSRuntimeWrap, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91'..

And then it gives me the little red x in the right corner.

I tried re-registering everything based on this post http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-IE/sqlkjsetupandupgrade/thread/5ed7480b-2ca5-48de-bd3b-4b3752237c31 and that didn't work.

Then I uninstalled SQL2008, reinstalled, applied SP1, it still didn't work. Then I re-registered things again and it still d

Problem opening dotnet 1.1 projet on 2008 web server


 We recently upgraded to a 2008 development web server and I installed all the stuff to get dot net 1.1 app working on the server.  I can host them and they work.  My problem is that when I try to open one in VS 2003 I get the following error.  I set up the web server the same as my previous one, and I think a long time  ago I got this error when we set up current one but do not remember how to resolve it.  So I moved my project files from the old server to the new server and then I get these errors. 


The web Server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web Project located at the following url: Http://localhost:/MobTracker. 'Http/1.1 500 server error

SQL Server 2008 R2 BIDS PageHeader's PrintOnFirstPage=False Not Behaving Like SQL Server 2008 BIDS

I have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 SP2 Enterprise edition to 2008 R2 Enterprise, and was in the process of validating that the process did not have any adverse affects on my existing 150 reports originally designed and managed via BIDS 2008. Several reports were designed where the first page has a header different from the rest of the pages.  I created the generic header in the PageHeader and set PrintOnFirstPage to False.  This worked great in 2008...but in 2008 R2 the real estate on the first page is not "freed," so the first page looks like it has an enormous top margin when rendered as a PDF. Even playing around with the visibility of the text box doesn't eliminate the whitespace - and setting visibility properties was not required to get it to work in SQL Server, which rendered as a PDF perfectly just yesterday before our upgrade! I noticed that there were three patches available, but I did not see a Fix available that addressed this issue, therefore I did not install them as advised on the site. Is there any way to do free up the real estate so my first page can use it (maybe a setting in 2008 R2 that wasn't there for 2008)? Or is this a known bug between the two and a patch/hotfix is in the works? I'd hate to have reports that were specifically designed with certain paging to have to be revisited one by one. Thank you fo

BIDS Query Designer very slow in VS 2008

I am in the process of upgrading my Report Server projects from 2005 to 2008.  These reports use an Analysis Services 2005 data source and have queries that are anywhere from 20 to 100 lines of MDX.  After upgrading a report, when I open or save a dataset in the Query Designer, it takes up to 20 seconds.  In 2005, this would happen almost instantly. Running SQL Server Profiler, I see that there is an extensive number (600+) of Discover events going on with the Analysis Services server while the Query Designer loads. My version of Visual Studio is 9.0.30729.1 SP and I am running Windows XP SP2. Thanks, Mitch

Easy install package vs MsSQL server 2008

Is there anything i wont be able to do if i use SQL Server Express Database from the downlod install package offered on asp.net? Ive used MSSQL server 2008 and 2005, but to be honest i think it might be overkill cause im not very familiar with those applications. I just need the database for creating websites. Will i be able to remote connect to my webbhotel host and remotely modify the database on the remote server?Now i have a mess, i have installed both MsSQL 2005 and 2008 and im not even sure wich database is created with what. I would love to just have one simple setup, but im not sure if i can manage to migrate the databases to the new computer with this easy install package.The easy install package contains: ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC Visual Studio 2010 Express Development Tool SQL Server Express DatabaseThanks for your time!

BIDS wont let me edit script tasks, Package wont open without a "temp" folder in appdata???

I have a very stupid problem, because the way BIDS works is just hilariousy idiotic.    Short Story: 1) When i try to edit script tasks it will complain about "failed to create project at some random path in temp folder" and wont open anything. I cannot edit script tasks anymore. THe project is essentialy dead to me. REboot or restart wont help. I spent five hours on this project and i dont want to do all that work from scratch! 2) I cannot port my solution to antoher computer or place because it links to the files in appdata/local/temp folder of the pc for some reason. If i delete that folder or port the solution, it will complain about some file in temp folder called "3jews....tmp" and will say that solution is unopenable. Need help to resuce my project and be able to continue working on it!   Long Story: When you make a project, BIDS stores its files in a separate folder: a solution file, a project file, a package file etc. You might have thought, you can now carry your solution over by copying this folder. WRONG! The BIDS actually stores files of  the solution in /Users/name/AppData/Local/Temp folder! And It cannot open a solution/package/project without files from that folder, now what kind of idiotism is that?   It all started with BIDS not saving my script task changes, then telling me "cannot create project in folder

Package Configuration Problems SQL 2008 R2

I have an SSIS package that is using a SQL Server configuration to store connection strings for the other connection managers used by the package.  The connection string for the connection manager used to get the SQL Server configuration data is passed to DTExec when the package is executed.  The SQL configuration sets the values of variables that hold the connection strings and the connection managers use the variables in an expression to set the connection string.  I'm doing this so that I can move the packages from dev to qa then to production.  I also need to have the child packages use the same connection strings as the parent package so each child package has a parent package variable configuration containing the connection strings.  It uses these to set the values of child package variables which are then used to set the connection string property of the connection managers using an expression. I tested my packages by connecting to the development SSIS server, clicking on the package and selecting run package.  I select the connection managers tab so that I can change the connection string of the connection manager that points to the SSIS Configurations table which contains the development connection strings.  This works great. I deployed my packages to the production server and again tested the packages by running them from the pr

DTExec is MUCH slower that just running my package in Debug mode in BIDS 2005

I am using BIDS / SSIS 2005.  I have a large package that runs very smoothly and fairly quickly when run in debug-mode through BIDS.  When I actually deploy the package to SSIS and execute it using either DTExec or DTExecUI it is WAAAAYYY slower than when run from the development environment.  So slow that I become convinced it is hanging on steps that execute very very quickly in BIDS.  I have read this thread -> http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/5585fa13-dd15-4406-9d4a-e993f2af5929 which has not helped. I understand that DTExec would be faster than DTExecUI because the former does not have to deal with the GUI component but I would have expected both (and especially DTExec) to be faster than running in debug from BIDS. I realize I am not providing a ton of detail here, problem is I just don't know where to start... any advice on what I should be looking at to improve package execution through DTExec and / or DTExecUI would be greatly appreciated.  Why would DTExec be so much slower than BIDS Debug??? Thanks in advance.. - Charles

The PerformUpgrade method failed opening SS2008R2 package on SS2008SP1

A colleague of mine developed a package with Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and SQL Server 2008 R2. When he handled the package to another colleague that had Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and SQL Server 2008 SP1 installed, the following error occurred for every ADO.NET Destination: Error 1 Validation error. Process File Detail: Process File Detail: The component metadata for "component "<component name>" (2135)" could not be upgraded to the newer version of the component. The PerformUpgrade method failed. <package name>.dtsx 0 0 Since I also have SQL Server 2008 R2 installed on my machine and the target environment is SQL Server 2008 SP1, do I need to downgrade my SQL Server installation, or is there a way for a developer with SQL Server 2008 SP1 to open and compile the packages?Paulo Morgado

c# in bids 2008

I have an old VB 6 program that I used to create new table partitions annually.  The program used SQLDMO.  We've upgraded to SQL 2008 since I used it last and it no longer works with SQL 2008.  It’s time for it to be upgraded anyway, so I thought I’d see if I could use the script task in BIDS and create a task to do the same thing using SMO.  I haven’t developed a thing in C# so I’m very much a rookie, and all the examples I find are for using C# in VSS – not in BIDS.  Can anyone point me to a good place where I can see samples of C# code in BIDS?   Here is what my VB6 code looks like, that I’d like to replicate in BIDS 2008 in a script task.  I’d like to do it there because I don’t have VSS.  Is it possible?   Sub Main()   Dim svr As SQLDMO.SQLServer2 Dim strFile As String   Set svr = New SQLDMO.SQLServer2 strFile = "c:\2011Tables.txt"   With svr     .Name = "MyServer"     .LoginTimeout = 15     .Login = "sa"     .Password = "MyPwd"     .Connect End With        Open strFile For Output As #1     For Each View In svr.Databases("LIVE").Tables     If InStr(View.Name, "2010") >
