BizTalk command line

I’m working through a known BizTalk issue that requires you to remove your application from BizTalk to be able to use VS2005 to deploy and ran across some helpful command-line stuff until a more permanent fix is applied:

To stop/start the applications there is a sample app that ships with BT:

<BizTalk Install Dir>\SDK\Samples\Admin\ExplorerOM\ApplicationManager

Use the BTSTask command to remove an application:

btstask removeApp /ApplicationName:<app name>

and Import bindings:

BTSTask ImportBindings /Source:"%BindLoc%" /ApplicationName:<app name>

The weather could have been a lot better, but running with 30,000 other folks is always a ton of fun.  I anticipated having more time to train, but my knee has not been cooperating this winter.  I was a few seconds slower this year – 49:17 but was surprised to see I could hold an average heart rate of 175 (I thought my LT was closer to 170).  I subscribe to O.S.Ca.R (Old Swimmers Can’t Run) so this puts me in about the same position for the June Richmond XTERRA triathlon as I was in last year.  Time to hit the pool!
