In this article, we will show you how to apply SSIS Package Configuration using Registry Entry with example. We already explained the list of Package Configurations in our previous article. So, please refer to the SSIS Package Configuration to understand the same.

Before we start the SSIS Package Configuration using Registry Entry, You have to add a new entry to the registry. So that you can access it while configuring the package. To open a system registry, Go to the Search Bar and Type Run. Remember, it is dangerous to edit Registry entries. So, I suggest you back up the registry file before you start proceeding.
