Hi,

I have recently started using BTDF 5.1 with Visual Studio 2012, BizTalk 2013.

Using the BTDF plugin within VS to deploy and undeploy my application works as expected.

Using the MSI to install my application works - creating Virtual Directories and BizTalk application etc.

When triggeing an uninstall via Add/Remove programs the binaries are remove from the redist directory but the VDIRs are not altered nor is the application removed from BizTalk.

Have I missed something? I have set set the UndeployIISArtifacts property to True.

Any pointers welcome.

Use the Start menu shortcut to Undeploy the application, then uninstall the MSI.

Hello Tom,

You are indeed correct using the Start menu shortcut does indeed Undeploy the application.

Thank you for the quick response.
