I have never tried to open dts package from vb file, but maybe right click on data transformation services node in EM and choosing ‘open’ option solves the problem.
If you want to save it as backup copy then open DTS in design mode and save it as structured Storage format file and then you can restore it whenever you need and you can even mail the file. To restore the file simply right click on Data Transformation Service option through EM and open the .dts file and save it on local machine or other SQL Server
