Applies to: SQL Server 2016 DeveloperSQL Server 2016 EnterpriseSQL Server 2016 Standard


Consider the following scenario:
  • You install the stand-alone version of SQL Server 2016 Management Studio (SSMS 2016), and there is no instance of SQL Server installed.
  • You export a database by using SQL Server Import and Export Wizard.
  • You try to select the Save SSIS Package option.
In this scenario, you can't select the Save SSIS Package option and receive the following error message:
In SQL Server Express, Web, or Workgroup, you can run the package that the Import and Export Wizard creates, but cannot save it. To save packages that the wizard creates, you must upgrade to SQL Server Standard, Enterprise, Developer or Evaluation.
