SSIS – Error: Could not get a list of SSIS packages from the project
Posted by Prashant on January 28, 2013
While working on a ssis project recently I was trying to build the solution however it was failing again and again without showing any error in Error List !!! and when I checked the Output List it was saying the below message (refer Fig-1).
Error: Could not get a list of SSIS packages from the project. ===== Build: 0 succeeded or up-to-date, 1 failed, 0 skipped =====
This message says there is some missing objects in the project (.dtproj), as CreateDeploymentUtility property was set to True for this project the ssis was not able to show the actual error message.
So set the CreateDeploymentUtility to False and build the project again to get the actual error. In my case there was a package added in the project however because of some source control issues the .dtsx file was not available in the project directory.
Now that you got the error to fix; go ahead and fix the issue then set CreateDeploymentUtility property to True and build the project successfully.
