I'm trying to run a DTS/SSIS package from my web page but I don't have SQL installed on the web server. I've seen references to include using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime; but that SQL must be installed.

How can I run a package from my web server without installing SQL Server on it?

As far as I know all you need is DTEXEC and the package.

Here are some options depending which SQL version you are running:

Unlike DTS, in order to execute SSIS you need a license for MS SQL Server.

Obviously you don't need to install SQL Server on your Web server

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I agree, unfortunately in order for them to execute an SSIS package in a production environment anywhere it requires a license for MS SQL Server. So either they re-think their plan or they will have to get a licensed copy of MS SQL Server installed on the web server.

One approach is to execute SSIS remotely on a server that has a licensed version of SQL Server using something like Control-M or PSExec.
