Hi, I have rebuilt my machine recently and added VS 2013 and SQL Server 2014 client tools and BIDS.

Unfortunalty I have a number of SSIS packages running on a customers SQL Server 2005 server that I need to edit. I cannot install SLQ Server 2005 BIDS on my machine as it says there is a later version installed (there is).

If I load the project ane edit the packages in VS 2013/BIDS for SQL Server 204 I can no longer run them on SQL Server 2005.

is there a way of targeting the DTSX packages at 2005 instead of the latest version so that I can edit them?

Not sure it's wise supporting a 2005 32-bit application on an obviously 64-bit box, especially with the different flavors of connections and drivers.  Is keeping a 2005 32-bit box around to support this client an option?

The only way to get this working was uninstall all the SQL Server client tools, then install 2005, 2012 and 2014 in order.

Now working fine
