Import SSIS package error 0xC0010014 when importing SSIS package

Hi Folks,

I'm writing this blog post to share an interesting find while i was developing a SSIS package using VS 2012 with BI tools. Microsoft has release on March this year 2013 BI tools to VS 2012 so you don't need to use VS2010 shell while developing SSIS packages.

The download link for BI tools in VS 2012 is here:

After i developed my SSIS package and try to deploy it on the SQL Server 2008 R2. I was getting the following error message when importing the package, here is the screen shots:

If you are using the Management studio you will get this above error without details!, but to get the detailed error message use SSIS Execute Package Utility, you can launch it from SQL SERVER 2008 R2 --> Integration Services --> SSIS execute Package utility

If you read the actual error message it says:
Package Migration from Version 6 to Version 3 failed with error 0xC001700A

Basically the Version that i used to develop the SSIS is higher than the recognized version by the SQL Server 2008 R2. To fix this problem you need to change the package version from 6 to 3 and it works like a charm!

Follow the following steps:
1) Right clich on our dtsx file and select edit, Open the file in notepad.
2) Look for:


3) Change the number 6 for the version to 3 and save the file.
4) Select the File System File from the SSIS execute utility and you will not get any errors!
6) From the management studio you can import the SSIS with no errors.

Hope this helps.

[Update 05/09/2013] You will run through other issues if you used VS 2012 SQL Data tools against SQL Server 2008 R2, one of them is the sql job agent will fail to run the imported job due to the xml format mismatch while executing the package. So, it is recommended to develop any SSIS SQL2008 R2 components using the old BIDS VS 2008.
