BIDS Helper was unable to load package configuration XML Configuration. Objects controlled by this configuration will not be highlighted

Aug 20, 2012 at 2:06 PM

I get the following warning message in SSIS, with BIDS Helper v1.5 installed: "BIDS Helper was unable to load package configuration XML Configuration. Objects controlled by this configuration will not be highlighted"

Can someone help me identify and resolve the problem? Thanks!

First, let's see if the configuration is working. Let's say the XML configuration is setting a variable calls MyVar. Manually change the value of that variable, save, close, then reopen the package. If the configuration is working, then SSIS will overwrite the value of that variable (or whatever property the configuration is setting). If it's not working, then the value won't have changed. Test that first. Obviously if it's not working in SSIS it won't work in BIDS Helper.

If it is working in SSIS but not working in BIDS Helper, is this a package you can share? If so, create a new Issue on the Issue Tracker tab and attach the dtsx file. We'll see if we can look at your approach and see if there's an explanation.
