    Downloaded this Friday.   It’s obvious a lot of effort has been made; much improved already over the 2004 documentaion.  Thanks for the hard work.

  3. kpabba says:

    Is there a way to log bugs/comments related to the documentation so that it will be taken care of in the actual RTM release?

  4. Suresh Reddy says:

  5. Luke Nyswonger says:

    Yes you can log issues by submitting feedback through the documentation. There is a "Send Feedback" button at the top of each page. You can also send comments directly to me if you would like.

  6. Ian says:

    Biztalk not an option in our MS.Net based organisation as the business wants rules to be managed by non technical personnel (underwriters etc).  Don’t know how practical this is, but your marketing material doesn’t say it is a possibility.

    Accepted you probbably know this already, maybe 2008 will include some kind of add on to hold the hands of business users?

  7. Jody says:

    In the adapter documentation, the display of security recommendations appears to have been standardized.  It would be nice if you could do the same with Best Practices.  I would like to see a Best Practices link for each Adapter (similar to link under the SQL Adapter).  In general, it would be good to include a Best Practices links under each relevant topic, but Adapter consistency would a good start.

  8. If you didn’t notice, Luke Nyswonger, lead programmer writer for BizTalk, just

  11. Piers says:


    I’ve downloaded the .chm files, but cannot open them. I’ve configured the .chm filetype to be opened by the Microsoft HTML Help Executable (windowshh.exe), but when I try and open the file I get a security warning. I then click ‘Open’, but then I get a dialog box that simply says: Cannot open the file: c:pathENTSSO.chm.

  12. w/r/t the .chm problem, see;en-us;312456

    Let me know if that doesnt resolve your issue.

    You can import and export business rule engine rules via xml. We do this in several of our apps. The users set certain criteria in the account setup of each client. That gets pushed down into the BRE when it is saved.

  15. Piers says:

    The MS support article didn’t help I’m afraid. The version of the Hhctrl.ocx I have is 5.2.3790.2453. IE is 6 SP2. OS is XP Pro SP2.

    I’ll check with one of our support guys and find out if they’ve seen this problem before.

  16. Paul says:

    Link no worky πŸ™‚

  17. Piers says:

    I’ve recently joined a new company and our support guy mentioned that my problem might be related to the fact that the location where I was saving these files to (Document and Settings) is actually mapped to a network drive. As soon as I copied these files to another (local) directory they opened ok πŸ™‚

    i’m an OS X user in my private life and BizTalk PM during the day, so i would really appreciate if the docs (for final releases) become also available as .chm πŸ™‚ At least that’s a readeri have for OS X. Thanks for the great doc.
