Opening dtproj files in Visual Studio

Posted on 2010-01-06

I'm a complete noob in Visual Studio so this might be a silly question...

I have to debug SSIS and I have the SSIS package which I'm trying to open in VS2005; however, if I run the .sln file I get an error that the dtproj is not installed; if I try to run dtproj I get the same error.

Any pointers?

    You pointed me in the right direction.  I already have SQL Server 2008 installed with Business Intelligence Studio.  The problem was that I was trying to open it in Visual Studio 2005 instead of running the Business Intelligence Development Studio and opening the .dproj file in there.
