I have downloaded and installed SSDT from Microsoft docs. The install was successful and I now have SSDT for VS 2017 installed - version 15.8.9 (as per screenshot)

However, I cannot create an SSIS project. There is no option in SSDT to do so.

When I try to open an old version of an SSIS package I get the below 'Unsupported'...

What else am I missing?

  • Which is the version of that 'old SSIS package'?

  • 2008R2. However, I cannot create a new SSIS package either. No business intelligence option in VS 2017 SSDT

  • According to docs, supported versions for SSIS are: Integration Services packages SQL Server 2012 – SQL Server 2017

  • Just to cover all the bases... when you ran the separate SSDT installer, did you tick the box for Integration Services?
