The following code example adds the Bulk Insert task as an executable to the package, then creates the Executables collection and iterates over it, displaying the CreationName.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace Executables_API
        class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Package pkg = new Package();
            Executable exec = pkg.Executables.Add("STOCK:BulkInsertTask");

            // Obtain the collection.
            Executables pgkExecs = pkg.Executables;
            foreach (Executable eachExec in pgkExecs)
                TaskHost th = exec as TaskHost;
                Console.WriteLine("Executable creation name is: {0}", th.CreationName);
                        // Show that at least one executable exists.
            if (pgkExecs.Contains(0))
                Console.WriteLine("Contains returned true");
                Console.WriteLine("Contains returned false");

Namespace Executables_API
        Class Program
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            Dim pkg As Package =  New Package() 
            Dim exec As Executable =  pkg.Executables.Add("STOCK:BulkInsertTask") 
            ' Obtain the collection.
            Dim pgkExecs As Executables =  pkg.Executables 
            Dim eachExec As Executable
            For Each eachExec In pgkExecs
                Dim th As TaskHost =  exec as TaskHost 
                Console.WriteLine("Executable creation name is: {0}", th.CreationName)
                        ' Show that at least one executable exists.
            If pgkExecs.Contains(0) Then
                Console.WriteLine("Contains returned true")
                Console.WriteLine("Contains returned false")
            End If
        End Sub
        End Class
End Namespace

Sample Output:

Executable creation name is: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.BulkInsertTask.BulkInsertTask, Microsoft.SqlServer.BulkInsertTask, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91

Contains returned true
