Recently i tried to get a BizTalk 2013 up and running. As i normally do, i use the BTDF to deploy the whole bunch of projects, so i downloaded the betaversion 5.1 from codeplex, and started the deployment. Unfortenately i ran into a problem when trying to deploy to the SSO store. I thought, let’s go crazy and enable SSO, unfortenately, this wasn’t a cakewalk, it wasn’t my birthday, but was certainly treated on some stuff i didn’t request, the pop-up;
And of course, the error that helps you out in tough times;
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalk\5.0\BizTalkDeploymentFramework.targets(1684,5): error MSB3073: The command ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Deployment Framework for BizTalk\5.1\Framework\DeployTools\SSOSettingsFileImport.exe" "<…>" /settingsFile:"<…> " /userGroupName:"BizTalk Application Users" /adminGroupName:"BizTalk Server Administrators"" exited with code -532459699.
Build FAILED. Problem My analysis is, that the BTDF is built against an older version of the SSO Interop Client. With the release of a new version of BizTalk 2013, the SSO Interop Client is also updated. This means that the reference to the BTDF project needs to be updated. Solution (workaround) Build a new version of the SSO executable / dll, using the steps mentioned below; 1) Extract the source The installation of the BTDF comes with the the source, which is located in a zip file. You should extract the source. And remove the readonly flag; 2) Convert the SSOSettingsFileImport project to a VS2012 solution 3) Analyse each project to determine if the reference is invalid a) Look at the reference b) Determine if the dll could be located c) Update the reference to the Interop SSO client for all projects that refer to this dll 4) Update the target .Net framework version (due to references in the interop client) a) Update deprecated methods (Reflection LoadWithPartialName is not supported anymore) b) Replace with ‘Assembly.Load’ c) Rebuild 5) Update the dll’s in the ‘DeployTools’ folder 6) Deploy your BizTalk 2013 project!
