SSIS: Copy/Move Variable Erroring due to custom Control Flow item Icon


Were running Bids Helper & Visual Studio 2008
We're using another codeplex addin Enhanced SSIS Execute Package Task(
However when trying to reassign some variables we're now finding Bids Helper throwing an error saying that the image of the component must be an image or an icon. I'm guessing the component hasn't be given a custom icon so has assumed the default
Image error attached

The good news is that this looks to be the same as Issue #30828, which is fixed. The bad news is that the fix isn't in the latest release version available for download yet.

If you can compile the latest source code yourself then it will include that fix. If you'd prefer I can compile it later and post a private build for you use.

that's great news thanks very much :)

I did do a search before posting this but must have missed that Issue.

If you are able to do a build that would be great, i haven't got VS installed on my works machine just BIDS unfortunately

Thanks again

See attached, the BIDSHelper and supporting DLLs. You should be able to replace your existing files with these directly. Depending on yoru local OS, they should be in "C:\Program Files\BIDS Helper 2008\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\BIDS Helper 2008\".

Visual Studio will need restart if it is open at the time to ensure it loads the new DLL.

(For info this was built using the latest code, changeset 95252)
