Enterprise SSO service start failure due to installation of VS2010

BizTalk and SSO was running smooth before the installation of VS2010 on my machine. I have a 64-Bit machine with Windows Server 2008 R2 and BTS 2009 installed. When I installed VS2010 my SSO was stopped and when I tried to start I started getting the error below

Windows could not start the Enterprise Single Sign-On Service service on Local Computer.

Error 0x80131700: 0x80131700

To issue started because it unregisterd SSOSQL.dll which is found on C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On folder. To register it again run regasm on the VS command prompt from your 32-Bit machine.

regasm C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\SSOSQL.dll

On my 64-Bit it worked by running the 64-Bit regasm which is found on C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727.

So go to the framework64 folder from the command prompt and run

regasm C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\SSOSQL.dll

BizTalk Server 2009 R2 renamed to BizTalk Server 2010

On March 22 2010 Microsoft announced to rename the BizTalk 2009 R2 minor release to BizTalk Server 2010 major version. According to Microsoft the BizTalk 2009 R2 version was to support Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2 and VS 2010 but now more functionality has been added to the product on the basis of customer demands.

Lets see what Microsoft has added to the BizTalk 2010 version and I will be waiting for the evaluation version to be released. There were not any major features added to the product in the 2009 version. The major update was in the BizTalk 2006 version and the R2 version with more adapters and adapter with WCF.

I am hoping that the new version offers features like Orchestration debugging in VS2010, more out of the box pipeline components and an option to totally bypass the message box in the orchestration. I have a wishlist which keeps on going.
