Old Getting Started
Before installing the COZYROC SSIS+ Suite, please check below for its compatibility with SQL Server, Visual Studio and SSDT. Installing software that is compatible with the SSIS+ Suite before you begin will ensure a much smoother and more rewarding experience, free from unnecessary delays.
Note that the SSIS+ Suite will need to be installed on any machines where you will be designing SSIS packages that use COZYROC SSIS+ components. It will also need to be installed on any Servers where you plan to schedule and execute SSIS packages that contain SSIS+ components.

SSDT Downloads and Compatibility
The following table is provided to help ensure proper installation and configuration of your environment, but most importantly, ensure that COZYROC SSIS+ Suite will successfully work. Although SSDT is downward compatible, not every SQL Sever version is supported. In order to avoid compatibility issues, installed the COZYROC SSIS+ Suite recommended for the SSDT version.

After reading through the End User License Agreement, Click the Checkbox to acknowledge that you accept the terms in the License Agreement and Click on the Next button to continue.
Note: the Custom Setup dialog window will appear, which will allow you to specify what SQL Server versions you would like to install.
To enable the COZYROC SSIS+ Components Suite in your Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS), follow these steps:
- Open BIDS
- Open any SSIS package
- Open your Toolbox
- Right-Click with your mouse anywhere in the Toolbox and select Choose Items from the pop-up menu.
- Click on the SSIS Control Flow Items tab in the dialog

Verifying the COZYROC SSIS+ Release
The existing release of the COZYROC SSIS+ Suite can easily be identified through the License Application, which is installed during setup. The License Application is used to retrieve and/or remove the license key.
- From the Windows Start Menu, locate the COZYROC SSIS+ program and then Click to expand the sub-menu.
Right-Click on the highest release available of the License Application and run as administrator (See Figure-01).
Note: when the COZYROC License window appears, you find the release toward the bottom left corner (See Figure-02).
Verifying the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) Release
One method in how to verify your current SSDT release is through the Control Panel ➡ Programs ➡ Programs and Features. Programs that are installed on your server are tracked and/or listed under the Programs and Features, which can be accessed through Control Panel.
- From the Windows Start Menu, locate the Windows System folder and then Click to expand the sub-menu.
- Click on the Control Panel (See Figure-04).
- Click on Program and then Click on Programs and Features.
- When the Program and Features Window appears, scroll down and locate the program Microsoft SQL Data Tools - Visual Studio 2017 (See Figure-05).
Using the above Compatibility Chart for SSDT, look up the build number to identify the release of SSDT.
Note: although Visual Studio provides version information, the information associated with SSDT can't help identify the accurate build number and/or release installed (See Figure-06).
Verifying the SQL Server Version
- Within a new Query window in SSMS, execute the SQL select statement 'SELECT @@version'.
