Unable to instantiate XML DOM document : SSIS 2005

SSIS 2005 Business Intelligence

Unable to instantiate XML DOM document, please verify that MSXML binaries are properly installed and registered.

 Other variations are  Failed to save package file “.dtsx” with error 0x8002801D “Library not registered.”

The reason you see this error is because MSXML got corrupted.

The fix is

1. Close Studio / Business Intelligence

2. Download Latest MSXML 4.0 (sp3)  as of today.

3. Install it. Done

2a. Some cases you may need to install MSXML 6.0.

    After trying to fix this issue with numerous attempts at reinstalling, uninstalling MSXML6 & MSXML6 SP2, I reinstalled MSXML4 SP3 and that fixed the issue I had with VS 2005 not loading any of my SSIS packages. Thanks!

    Many thanks – this did the trick for me, in VS2008.
