A package file normally has the extension .dtsx.

If the file name specified in the fileName parameter does not exist, it will be created.

The following example saves the .dtsx package in XML format with the name myXMLPackage.dtsx.

static void Main(string[] args)
            // The variable pkg points to the location
            // of the ExecuteProcess package sample 
            // that is installed with the SSIS 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 p = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);
            app.SaveToXml("myXMLPackage.dtsx", p, null);
