This is one of those ‘duh’ things that you feel silly for spending 20 minutes on. Okay okay. 30 minutes…okay 45 minutes.
With the ESB toolkit the Itinerary Designer doesn’t live in a BizTalk project, it goes in a C# project. If you click on a BizTalk project and “Add –> New Itinerary” you don’t get a error, but the normal BizTalk add item dialog appears. Stupidly, the add item dialog has “Add New Itinerary” in the title bar, but there is no itinerary to choose. For 20 minutes it looked like the ESB Toolkit Visual Studio addin’s were corrupted or not installed correctly. Okay, 45 minutes…sheesh.
This is the thread that wised me up.
