Biztalk2006R2 Install on XP

I've been fighting the last 2 days installing BIZTALK2006R2 on a dev XP machine.  The program installs fine but I get all sorts of config errors.

First I'm using a consolidated SQL2000 DB BTS2006.  The volume of messages will be low and I'm not too worried about performance. 

Second the DB is on a Remote server.

Since I configured my workstation and everything was fine I thought the config would be easy.  Anything but.

I kept getting errors installing the Biztalk Runtime components. 

Could not deploy 'Microsoft.BizTalk.KwTpm.StsDefaultPipelines' on computer 'XXXX'. Please check if BizTalk is installed correctly. (SeedCfg)

Great, this is on a XP machine without STS.

After pulling my hair out for a while I looked at the MSDTC settings.  I had to configure them like it says in the Install Guide under "Troubleshooting Problems with MSDTC ". RTFM.   The solution to my problem was to add some reg keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Polices\Microsoft\Windows NT\RPC\ RestrictRemoteClients 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Polices\Microsoft\Windows NT\RPC\ EnableAuthEpResolution 1

Next problem was during EDI/AS2 configuration.  I received this error:

Deploying Activity... ERROR: The BAM deployment failed.
Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'DTS.CustomTask'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM comp
onent for the interface with IID '{10020904-EB1C-11CF-AE6E-00AA004A34D5}' failed
 due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT
: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).

The fix was to install the same SQL2000 SP level on the XP machine as the SQL server.


Much better.
