Question: Why is there no fix for BizTalk 2010?
Answer: The accelerator fixes are not cumulative. When the attached 2013 fix was tested with the existing (and only) 2013 HL7 hotfix, there were no issues and the hotfix still fixed <whatever bug it resolved>. This 2013 fix is the baseline for newly-created/yet-to-be-created HL7 hot fixes. When the 2010 fix was tested, it broke most of the 2010 HL7 hot fixes (about 15). Meaning, whatever bugs were resolved would be broken again after installing this 2010 fix. As a result, the current resolution on 2010 and 2009 is the only resolution.
