Task not registered

Dec 30, 2010 at 11:32 AM

I recently installed this task and added it to the tool bar, but when I try and start it it says that it is not registered. Should the install have done that? I have looked at other posts that describe a rather lengthy and, in my mind, an overly complex way of regitering a task. Is there an easier way?

The installation process for Integration Services does leave a lot to be desired - but it's all we have to work with.

The installer should have taken care of everything - but here are things you need to check:

The FilePropertiesTaskXXX.DLL should be in at least two locations - %WinDir%\Assembly and %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\XXX\Dts\Tasks (where XXX is 90 or 100, depending on your version of SSIS).  If you have a 64-bit install, it should also be in %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft SQL Server\XXX\Dts\Tasks
