SSIS Manifest Deployment fails


I had a working SSIS package deployment and suddently it's not working.  I'm running SSIS as administrator when I build the SSIS package and get the error below when I run it from my MS Explorer window (double click).

As a test I created a new SSIS package with 1 data flow task; built it and tried to deploy from the manifest.  This too failed with the error below.

TITLE: Package Installation Wizard
You need to specify the full path to a SSIS deployment manifest file.

Thanks for any help you can lend me.

Other interesting information.  When I changed the deployment folder to my C: drive and not a network drive, the manifest deployment works.  The IT team says that there has been no permissions changes within the network directory structure.

For lack of an option, I'm leaving the manifest deployment and going to DTSUTIL:

echo on

DTUtil /FILE "I:\_Finance\FinPlan\DW\Source Code\ODS ETL\D2 Operations\D2 Operations\bin\Deployment\D2 Ops Data Load.dtsx" /DestServer MAY /COPY SQL;"D2 Ops Data Load"


Let me know if you think there is a downside to doing this.

I tried a new package called DW TEST with a simple control flow.  This generated a Manifest file and still get the error message.

I've run BIDS as Administrator and without and get the same error.

I gather that using the import option from within Management Studio would allow me to get around this?

Changed Deployment path to C:\Deployment.

This was shorter and the intended use of deployment.  Deployment should not be done on a network drive if possible.  The deployment folder then copies to the Server where you want to deploy.
