Utilizing Promoted Properties within Receive Shape Filters in BizTalk

Receive shape filters using promoted properties can provide great flexibility as to what messages your orchestration is subscribed to.  Though, that flexibility also introduces some difficulty when using an typed XML Document message. Recently I attempted to utilize a receive shape filter using a promoted property within my project. However, I noticed that when using an XML Document message type as the receiving message prevented me from using the my project’s  promoted properties within my receive shape filter.

MSVCP100.dll Missing When Installing BizTalk Server 2013

A quick post today.  While installing Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013 today on a fresh Windows Server I received the following error during the Enterprise Single Sign-On Server installation step:
“The program can’t start because MSVCP100.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.”
“The following platform components failed to install and will need to be manually installed before setup can proceed.  Enterprise Single Sign-On Server: Unspecified error.  Check the log for details.”
The BizTalk Server 2013 installation wizard then fails.  The cause of the above errors is the absence of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Packages.  The fix is very painless and involves installing the VC redistributable packages from the Microsoft site.
For a 64 bit installations, ensure that both the x86 and x64 packages are installed, x86 first then x64.  For 32bit installations, just the x86 package…

Querying BAM Data using BAM’s Web Services

Our BizTalk Practice has recently embarked on the endeavor of creating a tracking portal for one of our new BizTalk solution accelerators.  One of the initial steps for me was to devise a proof of concept for querying the BAM Database using the two included web services with BAM, BAMManagementService and BAMQueryService.  Microsoft does not officially support directly utilizing the two web services, limiting their official use to the BAM Portal exclusively.
If however, you find yourself in need of querying BAM data using the predefined web services, you can use the following:

Cleaning up BizTalk Databases

One maintenance task that I often perform when finishing development on a client is to refresh my BizTalk environment.  This usually includes cleaning up the tracking and MessageBox databases of old tracking data and messages.  The BizTalk 2010/2013 installation includes a set of stored procedures that can assist in this effort and ensure a BizTalk environment.

Custom Functions in Microsoft Business Rules Engine

The Microsoft Business Rules Engine (BRE), part of Microsoft BizTalk Server, allows for the creation of rich easily readable business rules which can be applied by a BizTalk solution, or any .NET code.   Out of the box, BRE and the main interface Business Rules Composer (BRC) have many different predicates that can be used within a rule, such as Equal, Less Than, Range, Greater Than, Not Equal, Between, and so on.  However, when creating a set of rules for a client, I realized that simple string functions that are not available ‘Out of the Box’  in the BRC.  I decided to create a .NET class which will contain a collection of  string functions for use within business rules.

BizTalk EDI Invalid Control Standard Identifier ISA11

A short and sweet post for this thursday morning.
While testing a HIPAA 834 Benefits Enrollment and Maintenance EDI Message for a client I came across an error translating the EDI message into an XML message using my EdiReceive pipline.  The ISA 11 value that was specified in the file was “{“.  However, I encountered a suspended message while receiving the message, specifying that:
