SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio - how to activate it?

This may well be a very stupid question, but I am tearing my hair out...

I have a SQL 2000 DTS package that I have converted to be SQL 2005 compliant using the Migration Wizard in SQL Server Management Studio.
My problem is that when I launch the "SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio" (devenv.exe), it launches a seemingly normally instance of Visual Studio, with none of the features alluded to in the help.

I'm running Visual Studio 2005, .net Framework 2.0.50727.42, SQL Server 2005 Developer

Any assistance much appreciated!

Thank you, just needed to open a project of the appropriate type.
Still think the MSDN documentation on migration from SQL 2000 to 2005 is really unclear though.
