Cannot create new BizTalk projects in Visual Studio Team System 2008

Suddenly I was unable to create BizTalk projects or even I was  unable to open existing BizTalk projects in my machine. Visual  Studio Team System 2008 started getting strucked when I started to do so.  I checked the event log and there was no events at all something related to VS 2008. But when I googled in some forum posts in MSDN says that when Visual Studio 2008 is repaired or when a Visual Studio 2008 update is installed, the value of the following registry entry is changed from csproj;btproj to csproj:

Location of those registry entries as below:

  • For 32-bit versions of Visual Studio 2008:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Projects\{FAE04EC0-301F-11d3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}\PossibleProjectExtensions
  • For 64-bit versions of Visual Studio 2008:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Projects\{FAE04EC0-301F-11d3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}\PossibleProjectExtensions

For you to resolve the error just Update Value data in the Edit String dialog box to include the btproj project extension in addition to the csproj. So the finally entry in the value data should be csproj;btproj.

But in my case the registry entry was okay and correct.

So finally decided it may due to some corrupted installation files and just repaired the BizTalk installation. Finally I was able to open all my BizTalk and new BizTalk projects without any hassle anymore. J

so i started blogging for 2011 🙂
