When running a .net executable SQL Packager package from the command line, the executable may fail with this exception message:
Unable to find entry point named AttachConsole in Kernel32.dll

This happens on Windows 2000 systems when the package is run from the command line using the /quiet switch. Possible workarounds are to not use the quiet switch and let the progress dialog display on-screen or opening the SQL Packager code template project and commenting the following code from PackageMain.cs:
if(packageExecutor.Quiet) //Quiet mode
{
/*PackageUtils.AttachConsole();*/
packageExecutor.Execute(); //Run
}

Note that commenting the code will suppress messages that would normaly be written to the console.
