There are 5 steps in this job. First job is an SSIS Package store, second to fifth are file system jobs. We configured all jobs to use Windows Authentication. Under Run As, we specified a user account which was created under Security>Credentials and SQL Server Agent>Proxies>SSIS Package execution. The job runs without any problems with this user account. We then proceeded to configure the job to use a service account instead. Service account was specified under Security>Credentials and SQL Server Agent>Proxies>SSIS Package Execution. The job fails with this error.

Based on some research, I then go into MS Visual Studio and Open the project. I change the property of the package security from "EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey" to "DontSaveSensitive" but i still get the above error. I am new to this so any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance
