Microsoft SSIS Service: 
Registry setting specifying configuration file does not exist. 
Attempting to load default config file.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

this is my MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<DtsServiceConfiguration xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
    <Folder xsi:type="SqlServerFolder">
    <Folder xsi:type="FileSystemFolder">
      <Name>File System</Name>

I found MSDN that I need to update my registry. But the only entry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\SSIS\ServiceConfigFile is (Default) with no value.

What must I add in registry so that I do not get this error any more?

If this happened after you installed SQL Server 2008 SP1, it looks like that it is by design.… – kaptan Jun 4 '13 at 23:34

In your registry, go to:



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ServiceConfigFile 

if value is empty then add in:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn\MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml
