Two issues after I upgraded to VS 2019: the large script task in SSIS will sometimes load in the VSTA and sometimes not VSTA is blank. Opening script task without project open corrupts task task.

Two Issue in SSIS occurred after upgrading to VS 2019

  1. A large script task would sporadically not load in VSTA. It would just show a blank screen in VSTA. Once I broke the task into smaller script task which cause some redundant work, the small tasks would open just fine. The large script task would hang trying to debug and not execute because of the VSTA loading issue. Is there a know limit to the size of script task or is there a bug?
  2. The SSIS package that I am editing is targeted to SQL2016. If you open the package and script task thru the solution explorer folder view the script task will be corrupted and will not open when you open by first opening the project or run. This appears to be a bug. Is there something that can be configured to prevent this?

    Hi @Hall, John ,

    Based on your input, you can try to do the following:

    1. Update VS 2019 up to 16.11.12
    2. Go to the Control Panel, and right-click, Repair for the Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2019
