We developed an SQL Server Integration Services Project in SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Development Studio for one of our clients.

However, on the client machine there is the 2005 Version of the Business Intelligence Development Studio installed, and when we copy the project there it cannot be opened.

So, is there a possibility to downgrade the Project from SQL Server Buiness Intelligence Studio 2008 to 2005?

I guess there is no direct way to do so.

actually you can open 2005 solution in 2008 but can't do opposite. you can't expect upward compitability in 2005

Came accross this little gem - I tested this and it works on a fairly customized package we had - did most of the work, including properly updating the connection strings for sql (we had to touch up our oracle connections, but that was trivial).
