I'm having problems getting the the ESB 2.0 itinerary designer to install correctly - during the install of the ESB msi I get a Visual Studio pop-up stating "Operation could not be completed". I get the option to add an itinerary on the context menu for a C# project, however selecting it just causes the 'Add New Item' dialogue to appear with no option for creating an itinerary.
System setup is as follows:
- Windows 7 x64 (I realised Win7 isn't officially supported)
- VS2008 with SP1
- VS2008 SDK v1.1
- SQL 2008 Developer with SP1
- BizTalk 2009 Developer
I've tried re-installing / repairing the ESB Toolkit install but not had any luck.
Anyone experienced this and have any ideas for a work-around?

I don't have any experience with installing the ESB toolkit on Windows 7 but here are 2 suggestions:
1) Install the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Software Development Kit (SDK) 1.1 (required by the Itinerary Designer in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008)
2) Install the BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0-x64.msi to install the BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0 on a 64-bit edition of the operating system

Had the same issue. Using a Windows Server 2008 machine, VS2008 SP1 and SDK1.1
The solution of copying to a shorter path did not work for me.
Apparently it has to do with UAC. When installing from an elevated command prompt, the installer worked as it should.
Strange second problem though: although the Add New Itinerary option is present, the templates are not...
Again in the commandprompt I executed devenv.exe /installvstemplatesa
After this all was well...
