Document Explorer 2005 is installed from...?
Did I miss something or is the answer to this question harder to track down than it should be? As documented in the 'BizTalk Server 2006 Installation Guide - Multiserver.doc', Document Explorer 2005 is a dependency for the BizTalk 2006 documentation. So the operations team on my current engagement asks me where it comes from... and I respond that that is a good question and that I'll have an answer for them in a couple of minutes. After a few tens of minutes I've inferred that it is part of the Visual ......

Why doesn't my custom property show up in the Receive shape filter?
I’ve come across a situation a couple of times in the past where I could not see certain (custom) properties in a Receive shapes’s filter list. In my cases, this appeared to happen when: I was attempting to use a property from a property schema that is in a different assembly from the schema that contains the node that you have promoted and The schema that contains the promoted property’s underlying value is the base type for the message the Receive shape will receive and I set ......
