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

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.
