Requirements to edit SSIS Packages

We have a programmer that built a bunch of SSIS packages and we have an analyst that maintains and runs these packages.  She has SQL Server 2012 standard installed on her laptop but she is leaving for vacation and someone needs to be her backup.  She is able to open, run, and edit the SSIS packages using VisualStudio 2010 Shell.  As we prepare for her vacation and trying to find the correct information on this has been highly confusing...  
The backup person, do I need to install sql server standard on his laptop so he can edit and run the SSIS packages or can I use SQLExpress or can I just install VisualStudio 2010 Shell?

Where are the packages stored/executed from? If they are not on her local "SQL Server 2012 standard installed on her laptop " then the backup person does not need that installed but SQL 2012 Management Studio, VisualStudio 2010 Shell and the exact same level of authority against that SQL Server as the person that leaves on vacation.

You can get SSMS Express tools from here or full SQL Server Eval tools from here.

MSDN/TechNet Downloads
is currently the only place to get RTM versions (non-eval) of the SSMS 2012 toolset.

the SSIS packages are up on a file server share. I was able to find after some serious digging on either MS or MSDN download site the VS 2010 Shell installer.

You can get "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package" here:

As far as to edit and run the packages against that SQL Server all needed is SSMS 2012 and the appropriate identical SQL permissions identical to the person that leaves on vacation.

So I install the VS 2010 Shell and get an invalid license data. Reinstall is required.  Re-installed and same error

Yes - I ended up just installing from the SQL 2012 standard tools and mgmt studio.  Still get a few random errors about visual studio, but it runs the packages without issue...

so at this point I think we should be good.
