Use caution when upgrading SQL 2008 CTP SSIS packages to RC0

Denny Cherry Denny Cherry Profile: Denny Cherry

A ran across a bit of a problem when upgrading my SQL 2008  CTP 5 (November 2007) SSIS Packages to SQL 2008 RC0.  Apparently Microsoft has changed the way that they handle the script tasks within the SSIS packages.  Because of this when I edit all of the script tasks within my SSIS package the scripts were all blank.

 The official fix from Microsoft is to install the older CTP version that you edited the scripts in on another machine and open the un-updated version of the SSIS package on that machine, and copy the code for the scripts into the RC0 version of the SSIS package.

The only object which I’ve had to do this on was a .NET Script Task.  I had this problem when going from CTP 5 to CTP 6 as well as from CTP 5 to RC0.  This will not effect migrating from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 as SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 CTP 5 do not use the same scripting engine in the back end.
