BizTalk 2013 TCP/IP Adapter
For a client’s migration to BizTalk 2013, I came across a TCP/IP adapter which needed to be migrated as well. I was unable to find a 2013 version of the adapter though and decided to update it myself. I used the 2010 fork of the original adapter and updated all references. Also the depricated setup project needed to be rebuilt, so now the setup uses a InstallShield Limited Edition setup project.
I haven’t added custom actions to the setup yet (have to figure out how in the new project-type). For now you can just add the 3 DLLs as a resource.
The adapter can be found over here:
- Make sure to close the BizTalk Administration Console. Just to make sure everything gets refreshed after installation.
- Download and install the setup. The setup makes sure the adapter will be registered in the Windows registry.
- Open the BizTalk Administration Console again.
- Create a new application (e.g. “BizTalk.TCPIPAdapter”) and add the following 3 DLLs as a resource of the application (you may also use a shared application you already have in place):
- Go to Platform Settings > Adapters and right-click. Select Add Adapter. Now choose TCP/IP and give it a name (e.g. “TCPIP”).
- Restart the host instance(s) the adapter will be hosted in.
- Ready for use, good luck! 🙂
- In the BizTalk Administration Console remove all artifacts associated with the TCP/IP adapter.
- In the BizTalk Administration Console remove the adapter itself by right clicking on Platform Settings > Adapters and selecting Delete.
- Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs in your environment and remove the BizTalk 2013 TCP/IP adapter.
- In the BizTalk Administration Console remove the resources you have added a step 4 of the installation.
- That should do the trick.
