Visual Studio opens DTSX files in XML view only

Environment is Visual Studio 2008

When I open a Solution that contains a group of SSIS packages (DTSX files), they are opening in XML view only.  However, if I open this same solution and files from another machine, I get the full designer.

Can anyone clue me in on how to fix this?  I had this same issue with opening Typed Datasets a while back but and remember having to reset the environment, but don't remember how.

It seems you don't have SSIS designer installed. It is installed with Business Intelligence Development Studio.
Try to install Workstation Components from the SQL2008 install disk.

I've tried to uninstall/reinstall and I tried to install BIDS, but it's not an option.  Could this be because it's a 64-bit machine?

I don't think so. BIDS is 32bit application in all SQL versions.

Do you have "normal" Visual Studio installed on that machine? If you have SQL Server Management Studio installed check if you can edit maintenance plans (the same designer is used).

Check settings in Tools --> Options --> Text Editor --> File Extension.

May be you have incorrect mapping here...

Also check if you have "Business Intelligence Designers" section.
May be you have two copies of VS 2008 and the default one starting is not BIDS...?
Check About dialog. You should have SSAS, SSIS and SSRS listed as installed products.

best regards

Apparently, this is not possible on a 64 big configuration.
