BizTalk Server Pipeline Component Wizard doesn't work in VS2012 with BizTalk Server 2013


The wizard only works up through BizTalk Server 2010 in Visual Studio 2010. Updates are required with the release of BizTalk Server 2013.

I have uploaded a patch that implements these updates and gets it all working if you want a shortcut to getting it released.

There's a patch here for VS2012 support. Requires InstallShield for the installer project. Otherwise, just look at the code for the custom action and you can see the install steps (they're pretty straight forward).

I installed the patch and visual studio no longer recognizes BizTalk templates. Let me know if there is a patch for BTS 2013 R2 with VS 2013.

After downloading above patch, if you don't have install wizard, then you can do below.
  1. Create a console based application
  2. Add below code
            CustomActions action = new CustomActions();
        IDictionary dictionary = new Hashtable();
    3) Add CustomAction project as reference (Is part of the release)
    4) Open CustomAction source code and do below change to private bool RegisterPipelineComponentWizard(bool unregister)
//regAsmArguments = string.Format("\"{0}\"", Path.Combine(base.Context.Parameters["ApplicationPath"], "PipelineComponentWizard.dll"));

            regAsmArguments = string.Format("\"{0}\"", Path.Combine(@"D:\PipelineWizard\PipelineComponentWizard\bin\Debug", "PipelineComponentWizard.dll"));
Note: Change "D:\PipelineWizard\PipelineComponentWizard\bin\Debug" to your location.

Then run the console application. It registers the component to VS.
Open Vs and you can see new Visual studio project "Pipeline component Wizard" under BizTalk projects.

SATISH1986 - Yes, the registration of the wizard in the .vsdir file used an old Guid for the VSPackage. This has been updated to use the new Guid in the last version of the patch.

To resolve the issue, you can uninstall the Pipeline Component Wizard, remove the line for it in the .vsdir file and then re-install the Developer Tools component of BizTalk Server.

I have posted a new version of the patch which resolves the issue, and cleans up the install/uninstall.

New (VS 2013 + BizTalk Server 2013 R2) version of the patch is here.
