problem while compiling a biztalk solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi friends,

    I have done the fresh installations of Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk 2006 development tools and even done repairs of both but still whenever I try to compile a solution it replies with

    "compiler for file type *.xsd failed, value cannot be Null. Parameter name Punk"

    The same setups are perfectly working for on one of the other machine.

  • There is a hotfix for this issue http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884412

    It applies to BTS2006 and R2 as written on this blog/comments.

  • Thanks, but the solution seems to be as per BTS 2004 as I could not find the BTSInstaller and I have already followed the information mentioned in the "More Information" section, but still the issue is there.

  • I think you need to re-install/Repair BizTalk.

  • Hi,

    Clean the BizTalk. I mean see that no db trace of BTS in SqlServer.

    Remove Ent. SSO and start fresh installation.

  • Hi,

    I've seen this problem couple of times before on my development machines. Repairing BizTalk will fix it. At least it did in my case :-)
