Member nameDescription

using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace Package_API
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
                    Application app = new Application();
            Package pkg = new Package();
            pkg = app.LoadPackage(@"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\CalculatedColumns Sample\CalculatedColumns\CalculatedColumns.dtsx", null);

            // Set the CheckpointUsage to IfExists to force package to restart if
            // the file specified by the CheckpointFileName property is found.
            pkg.CheckpointUsage = DTSCheckpointUsage.IfExists;

            Console.WriteLine("Check for existing checkpoint file? {0}", pkg.CheckpointUsage);

Sample Output:
