BizTalk 2004 Install Issues

June 27th, 2008  |  Published in BizTalk Tips

I have had to install BizTalk Server 2004 on several desktops/laptops with Windows XP SP2 for developers working with me. I have seen several people struggle for days to complete installation and configuration.

Solutions for common errors during the install:

1. Remove .NET Framework 2.0 and above using the available tools

2. Add user “NETWORK SERVICE” on local machine and grant full permissions on %SystemRoot%\Temp

3. Add “127.0.0.1    Fully Qualified Machine Name” in etc\hosts file

4. Add Registry key “RPC” to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT and add DWORD  EnableAuthEpResolution =1

5. Enable MSDTC with “No Authentication Needed”

6. Reboot the machine

I intend to add details for each step when time permits.

IMPORTANT: DO THESE AT YOUR OWN RISK
