Visual Studio 2013 cannot open SSIS projects

I have a few SSIS projects that were written using VS 2010 and VS 2012 and when I try to open them using Visual Studio 2013 all I get is incompatible project. I downloaded the SSDT for VS 2013 but that did not help. Is there any way to get VS 2013 to open SSIS projects?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have had this issue myself on occasion.  I typically find it easier to create a new solution/project and add the packages as existing items as opposed to trying to make the older solutions/projects work in the new environment.

Maybe someone else has a silver bullet fix that I'm not aware of though.

I would try that if I could. If I click New Project I do not get the option for Business Intelligence and hence no option for an SSIS project. What the heck am I missing?

It sounds like you need to install the DataTools which is the new name for the old BIDS tools.

It took me a while but I believe I had stumbled upon this one. It is odd that these tools are not part of the basic SQL installation. Thanks for the tips.

They are part of the install but they aren't included by default.

SSDT has been removed completely from SQL Server 2014.
