Microsoft Hotfix BizTalk Server 2009 – Schema References broken

Problem

On a computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009, you use Microsoft Visual Studio to develop a BizTalk application. In your BizTalk project, you add a reference to another BizTalk project. In this scenario, you may see the following behavior:

  • The orchestrations in the referenced BizTalk project may show compiler warnings.
  • The changes that are made to the referenced BizTalk project are not propagated onto the referenced project.
  • When you edit the orchestrations of the referenced project, XLANG errors are thrown. These errors may disappear after the orchestrations are saved and recompiled.
  • After you deploy the referencing project, the local copies of the referenced project’s binaries are deleted.
  • After you deploy the referencing project, various errors or warnings occur in Orchestration Designer.

Cause

  • This problem occurs because the project reference is lost intermittently when you develop a BizTalk project in Visual Studio 2008.
