CU 1 voor de BizTalk-Adapter Pack 2010

This cumulative update for Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 contains hotfixes for Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 issues that were resolved after the release of BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010.

It contains following hot fixes:
  • FIX: The WCF-SQL adapter from BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 or from BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 does not write enough useful error information
  • FIX: A WCF-based SQL adapter may lock SQL Server resources when the PolledDataAvailableStatement binding property returns a positive result but the actual polling does not return any data
  • FIX: Statement in the PollStatement property incorrectly runs if a receive location uses WCF-based BizTalk Adapter for SQL Server
  • FIX: An update is available that adds the ClearRfcContext binding property to the WCF-based SAP adapter from BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 or BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010
  • FIX: Multiple grouped IDOCs are processed incorrectly if the WCF-based SAP adapter in BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 or BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 uses the String setting to connect to an SAP system
  • Hotfix to add the "ReceivedIdocRelease" binding property for the WCF-SAP adapter to BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 and Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010

VS2008: web services enumeration components not available

Recently I got following error when trying to add a Web Reference to VS2008:
The web services enumeration components are not available. You need to reinstall Visual Studio to add web references to your application.

I have no idea why this error suddenly appeared.
However, I did find a solution to this issue.

I executed 'devenv /ResetSkipPkgs' from the command line in a VS2008 command prompt.
This did the trick for me.
