BizTalk Pipeline Component problem – Component ‘…’ could not be initialized. Pipeline component ‘…’ could not be resolved (is an assembly reference missing?).

Some days ago I was trying to make some changes in a pipeline component that was deployed earlier and when I tried to test the component he originated the following error:

“Component ‘…’ could not be initialized. Pipeline component ‘…’ could not be resolved (is an assembly reference missing?)”

Solution

  • Rebuild pipeline component in Visual Studio
  • Shut down Visual Studio
  • Deploy the component (copy to “C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server …\Pipeline Components”)
  • Restart BizTalk Host Instances

These steps solved my problem

Other possible solutions

Solution 1

  • Some external assemblies are missing
  • Copy the missing assemblies in the Pipeline components folder or in GAC

Solution 2

  • Restart the system

  1. I am trying to use custom pipeline components in a Visual Studio 2013 solution, and to build that solution on our build server. I have created a nuget package for that component library, which is properly restored on the build server, however, the build fails withe message ‘Component ‘x’ could not be initialized. Pipeline component ‘y’ could not be resolved (is an assembly reference missing?)’.

    Is it required that the library is copied into the Pipeline Components folder and/or installed into GAC?
