BizTalk Error: Project Creation Failed


The error message appears on the status bar when you try to add a BizTalk 2009 project in Visual Studio 2008.
Error Details: “Create BizTalk Project …. Project Creation Failed”

This problem may occur after you applied SP1 for VS.


Browse to the installation folder of BizTalk 2009, run setup.exe, and choose “Repair” button, after that, you will work out the issue.

    Just to clarify, the "Repair" option is behind the "Install BizTalk Server on this computer" option.

    There was no biztalk template in my Visual Studio 2008. Later I figured out, [Developer Tools] options should be checked during installation of Biztalk sever. So I did, BTS 2009 projects templates all disappeared except "BPEL" template when VS2008 is opened. Reopened the Visual Studio after a while, then all templates appear including biztalk template.

    But when I tried to create project using [Empty Biztalk Project], it is failed. Biztalk Server is repaired from [Repair] option while runing setup.
