Problem in opening the project

Hi, I have been working on some SSIS packages for a while now and today while i was working i was trying to create a new connection and in the process there was an error and it said the BIDS has to be closed and i closed it but later when i open BIDS and try to open my project(.sln) from the file menu to work on the half done package it pops up an error which shows the path to my project location on the first line and next statement on the pop up error box says: "Make Sure the application for the project type (.dtproj) is installed." I tried to check some forums in which some suggested to try installing SP1 which i tried but ..i dont know why but the SP1 fails to install (i dont know if its causing problem becoz i already installed SP2 as i had some other problem before for which the cure was to install SP2).
Now i cant open any of the old packages which i already completed. Did anyone here face such a problem before ? I’d really appreciate if the experts here can tell a cure for this problem. thanks, Ravi —————————————-
