        // of the ExecuteProcess package sample 
        // that is installed with the SSIS samples.
        string packageFile = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";

        Application application = new Application();
        Package package = application.LoadPackage(packageFile, null);

        // Retrieve the information from the Properties collection.
        // Each item in the collection represents a property on the
        // object. This example reviews the properties of the 
        // Package object.

        DtsProperties properties = package.Properties;

        String propertyName;
        DTSPropertyKind propertyKind;
        String packagePath;
        TypeCode propertyType;

        foreach (DtsProperty property in properties)
            propertyType = property.Type;
            propertyName = property.Name;
            propertyKind = property.PropertyKind;
            packagePath = property.GetPackagePath(package);
            Console.WriteLine("Property Type: {0}, Property Name: {1}, Property Kind: {2}, Package Path: {3} ", 
            propertyType, propertyName, propertyKind, packagePath);
