ESB Import Failure: Microsoft.Practices.Modeling.Services

You've got your solution all tested and ready to go. You've practiced deployment on your test systems. You go to run BTDF to deploy the solution to your production system and you get an error about Microsoft.Practices.Modeling.Services being unavailable. This occurs at the step when BTDF is deploying one of your itineraries using ESBImportUtil.

The problem you'll find is that the tools folder doesn't exist at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1 in your production system. So go into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1\Tools\Itinerary Designer on your test system and copy the files

  • Microsoft.Practices.Modeling.Common.dll
  • Microsoft.Practices.Modeling.ExtensionProvider.dll
  • Microsoft.Practices.Modeling.Services.dll
to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1\Bin in your production system. Redeploy the solution and your itinerary should get through fine.
