BizTalk Server 2013 – Redistributable CAB Files

Posted: June 2, 2013  |  Categories: Administration BizTalk

BizTalk Server relies on diverse products and technologies to provide essential services and features. If not already present, some software that is required by BizTalk Server is installed on your computer during the BizTalk installation process, such as:

  • Microsoft SQL XML 4.0 with Service Pack 1
  • Microsoft Office Web Components
  • Microsoft ADO MD.Net 9.0
  • Microsoft ADO MD.Net 10.0

Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013 Installation Wizard, in the “Redistributable Prerequisites” screen, gives you the option to:

  • Manually install the redistributable prerequisites: By selecting this option you are choosing that you want to manually install the redistributable files that are required for the installation process to continue. In this case, the installation process is canceled.

  • Automatically install the redistributable prerequisites from the Web: By selecting this option the Wizard will download and install the necessary components automatically for you. The disadvantage is that this option requires an internet connection.
  • Download the redistributable prerequisites CAB file: By selecting this option the Wizard will automatically download the correct version of the redistributable prerequisites CAB file which is compatible with the operating system that is running the Installation Wizard, to your computer so that you can install later and will exit the installation process. Again this option requires an internet connection.
  • Automatically install the redistributable prerequisites from a CAB file: y selecting this option the Wizard will automatically install the redistributable prerequisites from a CAB file that you have previously downloaded. So the disadvantage is that you already must have downloaded the correct CAB file before running the setup but in return, you don’t need an Internet connection.

The CAB file containing all the prerequisites needed, however, if you are choosing the last option “Automatically install the redistributable prerequisites from a CAB file”:

  • Be sure you are using the correct CAB file according to your language and operating system.
  • And you cannot use CAB files from previous versions of BizTalk Server to install BizTalk Server 2013.
