DTS was already installed on my workstation (possibly through Windows Update):

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\DTSWizard.exe


SQL Server 2005 Express - DTS Confirmed:

If it is not installed on your workstation, try the following:

  • Download “Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Toolkit” (SQLEXPR_TOOLKIT.EXE) from the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition site.

  • Run the installer, I think DTS is included in the Business Intelligence Development Studio, so make sure you install it using the Feature Selection screen.

Issue - Connection refused from a Java application.


The TCP/IP and Named Pipes protocols are disabled by default upon the installation of SQL Server Express.

The default TCP/IP port that SQL Server Express listens on may not be 1433.


To configure a data source for SQL Server Express using the default SQL Server driver, follow these steps:

  • Launch the SQL Server Configuration Manager.

  • Expand Server Network Configuration.

  • Expand Protocols for SQLEXPRESS.

  • Enable Named Pipes.

  • Enable TCP.

  • Select TCP/IP in the right pane.

  • Select Properties, IP Addresses.

  • Make “Enabled” for all applicable IPs = “Yes”.

  • If the TCP port value is empty, blank out “TCP Dynamic Ports” and set TCP Port to 1433 for all applicable IPs.

  • Restart SQL Express (Using Services).

  • The port number can be checked by looking in the log file:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG
