No longer Copy Local That Biztalk Reference !!!!!!!

January 25, 2010 / Comments Off on No longer Copy Local That Biztalk Reference !!!!!!!

On monday 19 january I gave a presentation to the dutch BizTalk User Group (BTUG) about he BizTalk Best Practices. The Best Practices are a set of components, a loosly coupled architecture and a software factory that supports the components and the architecture.

The presentation went very well and for sure I had to demo something. And while i was demoing i had a lot of trouble with the references. Normally i don’t have these problems during a demo cause then i build the complete solution in about half an hour. (including deployment & stuff). But this time I had only 10 minutes to demo, so i had set up some stuff (and tested) in pre set up projects….

But then i got red circles everywhere in my orchestrations. This was cause by the problem described excellent in this post : “Copy Local That BizTalk Reference” by Pim Waaijenberg.

Then today I read my rss feeds in BlogLines (great web based reader) feeds and there I saw this post : Hotfix for BizTalk 2009 and Visual Studio 2008 issues released.

So it seems my demo came just a few days too early…(or this fix was a few days too late !).

Anyway it seems the problemis solved.


I saw my BizTalk Collegue Jean Paul Smit already blogged about this. He was not able to sit through the whole BTUG meeting so i don’t know if he saw me with this problem. He has a nice entry about it explaing what is solved. Have a read of his post here :

Gjeeeeez, Guidance automation and VS 2008 SP1, Thank Google for that !

When you are working with the Guidance Automation toolkit, you are creating all kind of wizards yoursef.

Currently I am in the middle of doing so and after adding a specific recipe to create a Biztalk Project I got the following error :”project creation failed”  
So I tried to create a BizTalk project without my custom wizard and I got the same error.

I googled around a bit on : project creation failed

And i found the following post that everybody is referring to :

Unfortunately this didn’t solve the problem. After googeling some more I found this :

This one states that after installing Visual Studio SP 1 you have to reinstall the specific BizTalk components. 
Then I remembered that before I shut down my Virtual Machine the last time I Installed SP1.

I am currently re-installing BizTalk to see if that solved the problem. If it does I am a happy man, and somethimes I think : Thank ‘Google’ for that…….
