Yes.  There is no such animal as an SSIS license.

I've run into this a couple of times, and installing SSIS (or dtexec.exe) on a box separate from a full SQL Server or BIDS is not possible.

The last time, we had to Remote Desktop into a box that did have SQL Server installed, copy the .dtsx project file there, create a .bat file to run it, and go into Windows Task Scheduler to schedule a task to run the .bat.

Good luck.

so you are suggesting that SSIS needs same licensing as a license for SQL Server instance (if SSIS is the only 'sql' install on the server from the SQL DVD)?

So you could/would classify SSIS standard vs SSIS Enterprise and so forth.
