Hello all.  I am having a problem on our SQL 2005 box where anytime I try to open a dtsx file which used to open fine is now saying:

Error loading Update_OEM_PartNumbers.dtsx: The connection type "OLEDB" specified for connection manager "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server" is not recognized as a valid connection manager type. This error is returned when an attempt is made to create a connection manager for an unknown connection type. Check the spelling in the connection type name.        D:\SQLSSIS\Update_OEM_PartNumbers.dtsx      1      1      

Any idea how I fix this?  All of the packages say the same thing now.

Try to open your DTSX file in any text editor and look for ConnectionString property of your connection manager. Then check what provider name is given in this connection string. If it's not SQLOLEDB.1 or SQLNCLI.1 then try to modify it by simply overwriting the existing values (make some backup copy of the file before).

it says now SQLNCLI.1.   I was reading an article that something is probably wrong with registry keys which I checked by running this program but still no dice.


ran the program but no invalid keys came up.
