trouble deploying (locally?)

trouble deploying (locally?)

trouble deploying (locally?)

I'm rather new to BizTalk and I'm working through one of the example solutions presented in BizTalk Server 2004 Unleashed.  In trying to deploy this solution, using "Build/Deploy Solution" while in the MDE, I see the following in the Output pane:

------ Skipped Deploy: Project: BasicOrchestration, Configuration: Development .NET ------

Project configuration skipped because it is not selected in this solution configuration

When I go to look at the server in the BizTalks Administration Console, I do not see its associated Send Ports, nor its Receive Locations.  So, it looks like the solution did not properly deploy.  Can anyone help me locate the reason for this deployment trouble?  As far as I know, I followed the example in Chapter 9 correctly and the solution builds without errors/warnings.  But, I must have done something wrong.

Thank you,

RE: trouble deploying (locally?)

Not sure but probably worth looking into strong named assembly key.
-Right Click Project
-Common Properties
-Assembly Key File

Ensure there is a snk file in that configuration box.
If there is not you will need to find or generate one.

To generate one, use the VS.NET Command Promt, which can be found in the Visual Studio.NET Tools menu option in your programs menu and type:

sn -k mykeyfile.key

Replacing mykeyfile with what ever you wish to call the keyfile.


RE: trouble deploying (locally?)


Hey.  I appreciate the advice.  I was using the wrong "Deploy" function.  What I needed was to deploy the assembly, not the solution.  To deploy the assembly, what I need to do is RHM on the assembly and select Deploy.  Instead, what I had been trying was the pull-down menu Build/Deploy Solution and that is wrong for what I'm trying to do.

Thanks again for trying to help.
