Class ApplicationTests
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            ' The variable pkg points to the location of the
            ' ExecuteProcess package sample installed with
            ' the SSIS samples.
            Dim pkg As String =  "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx" 
            Dim app As Application =  New Application() 
            Dim p As Package =  app.LoadPackage(pkg,Nothing) 
           ' Now that the package is loaded, we can query on
           ' its properties.
            Dim n As Integer =  p.Configurations.Count 
            Dim p2 As DtsProperty =  p.Properties("VersionGUID") 
            Dim pl As DTSProtectionLevel =  p.ProtectionLevel 
            Console.WriteLine("Number of configurations = " + n)
            Console.WriteLine("VersionGUID = " + p2)
            Console.WriteLine("ProtectionLevel = " + pl)
        End Sub
End Class

Sample Output:

Number of configurations = 0

VersionGUID = Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsProperty

ProtectionLevel = EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey
