BizTalk 2010, Visual Studio 2010 Project Creation Problems

    Question

  • All,

    I have installed Visual Studio 2010 and BizTalk Server 2010.  Now when i migrated the applications / solutions, I am not able to open the Project. It says Unable to load project or something. I tried to repair the BizTalk installation and also fix the registry keys.. Its all in place as required. Do i need to do something else to fix it?

    Thanks in advance

    I am able to create a project in VS2010. But when i open up a solution which was created in 2009 it does all the Migration stuffs and then throws the error saying that Cannot create project etc etc.  Dev Tools are installed and I checked the registry if the .btproj is there and also tried to repair the BizTalk Installation. 

    As suggested by Rajesh, tried creating a new solution and then added the projects. That worked, but any idea why the Migration is failing? any problem with the Migration tool??

    Regards

  • This may or may not be happening in your case, but just wanted to share our experience during our recent migration to BT2009.

    When we migrated BizTalk 2006 R2 to BizTalk 2009, we observed issues with stand alone BizTalk projects(or part of some other hybrid solution). We had to create a separate solution in VS 2005 and add the BizTalk project and then migrated the solution using migration wizard in VS 2008.

  • Can you create a new BizTalk 2010 solution or are you facing similar problems?

  • Hi Roopesh, 

    Please verify if Developer Tools and SDK for BizTalk Server has been installed. If not then modify the existing installation and install the Developer Tools and SDK. I hope everything has been installed without any warning. Please also dont keep previous version of Visual Studio as sometime it may create problems.

  • Roopesh,

    Glad to hear that it worked. I thought, it made sense when it happened for 2006 R2 to BizTalk 2009 migration as the project/solution file format was changed in BT 09. Since you are observing similar issues with migration of BT 2009 to BT 10, I guess there are some changes w.r.t BT 2010 project/solution structure too. Probably comparing old and new project/solution files could help understanding the nature of changes.

    My best guess is that, migration might be expecting to access/change some metadata about the project in the solution file and thus causing migration of individual projects that are in older version.

    HTH,
