            pkg = app.LoadPackage(@"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\CalculatedColumns Sample\CalculatedColumns\CalculatedColumns.dtsx", null);

            // Set the CheckpointUsage to IfExistts to force package to retart if
            // the file specified by the CheckpointFileName property is found.
            pkg.CheckpointUsage = DTSCheckpointUsage.IfExists;

            Console.WriteLine("Check for existing checkpoint file? {0}", pkg.CheckpointUsage);
