How to Install CRM Adapter for BizTalk Server 2009

Installing CRM for BizTalk Server 2006 is quite straight forward. The CRM adapter for BizTalk requires that BizTalk 2006 to be installed. But when I tried installing CRM adapter on BizTalk Server 2009, it fails.

 

What I realized while installing CRM adapter for BizTalk 2009, it is just checking if Biztalk 2006 installed on the system. So I started digging about and discovered that CRM installation is simply looking for the registry key that says BizTalk Server 2006 is installed. So here is a short step in order to get the adapter installed on BizTalk Server 2009.

 

Action items before installing CRM adapter for BizTalk 2009:

Before installing the CRM BizTalk adapter, take a backup of the registry (good practice) and then modify the following key (mentioned below), then install the adapter. After the adapter is installed, set the key back to its original value.

 

For 64 bit machine:

Start run >> type regedit then hit enter, navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\BizTalk Server\3.0

change ProductName = "Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009" to ProductName = "Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006"

 

For 32 bit machine:

Start run >> type regedit then hit enter, navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\BizTalk Server\3.0

change ProductName = "Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009" to ProductName = "Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006"


You are done, now install CRM adapter, once installation is done successfully make sure you revert back the registry product name to its original value.

  • Nice article, however the title does not reflecte in the article. I was expecting a complete installation description of the adapter. I added the tag "needs improvement" so we can follow it up and ensure that the rest of the content is put into this article. On the other hand great work so far!

  • This nice little registry hack also works for installing the Commerce Server 2009 R2 adapters onto BizTalk 2013. I modified the registry key to be BizTalk 2010 and the install worked fine!
