I have trouble just getting started with BIDS, the development environment for creating SSIS packages in SQL Server 2005. I don't know if it is just a license / version issue or if i am missing some components.
If i install SQL Server Express 2005, there is NO BIDS component.
If i install SQL Server Express 2005 Toolkit, there IS BIDS component; but when i try to create a new project, there is NO "SSIS package" project template.
I try to install it on different machines, with same results.
Thank you for any suggestion.
