using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace LoadFromSQLServerTest
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // The variable, pkg, points to the location
            // of the ExecuteProcess sample installed with
            // the SSIS package samples.
            string pkg = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";
            Application app = new Application();
            Package loadedPkg = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);

            // Save the package to SQL Server.
            app.SaveToSqlServer(loadedPkg, null, "yourserver", null, null);

            // The package can now be viewed in the 
            // Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, in the 
            // Integration Services / Stored Packages / MSDB folder,
            // with a name of UsingExecuteProcess.
            Package pkgIn = new Package();
            pkgIn = app.LoadFromSqlServer("\\UsingExecuteProcess", "yourserver", null, null, null);
            DateTime pkgCreation = pkgIn.CreationDate;
            Console.WriteLine("Creation Date = {0}", pkgCreation);

Sample Output:

Creation Date = 5/5/2003 5:46:00 PM
