I was migrating SSIS packages from a SQL Server 2008 R2 server to a new SQL Server 2012.
When I loaded a package in the SQL Server Data Tools, I got the following error:
Cannot show Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Applications editor
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (mscorlib)
