Install BizTalk Server 2006 Orchestration Designer for Business Analysts with Visio 2007

Recently I tried to install BizTalk Server 2006 Orchestration Designer for Business Analysts (ODBA), but the installation failed with this error message.

I had Visio 2007 on my system and it looked like ODBA installer was hard coded to look for Visio 2003. To confirm that, I used Registry Monitor utility from Windows Sysinternals web site (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/default.mspx).

I found that the installer does look for this registry key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Visio, but cannot find it. However, I found similar registry key for Visio 2007: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Visio. I exported this registry branch to a file and replaced all instances of “12.0” to “11.0”.

After merging this file with the registry, I was able to install and use ODBA.
