Important:

  • If you perform a custom installation to install only the BTARN HTTP Front End feature, BTARN configuration may fail after setup is complete, displaying the error message “Failed to create object for feature: WebApp”.

  • If Visual Studio 2012 is installed on the same computer as BizTalk Server, the source folder for the two files is <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC100.ATL. If Visual Studio 2012 is not installed on the BizTalk server, the source folder for the two files on the BizTalk server is a folder under <drive>:\WINDOWS\WinSxS. The version of the files should be 8.0.50727.42. The destination folder on the computer where you have installed the HTTP Front End feature is the BTARN installation directory (by default, <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk 2013 R2 Accelerator for RosettaNet).
  • After you have copied these files to the computer with the HTTP Front End feature installed, rerun Configuration.exe.
