It sounds like you are using a script to run the deployment vs. the built-in Start menu items. You're probably not passing the correct parameters to MSBuild.

Please check out the documentation regarding scripted deployments..

Found the cause. For some reason the msbuild extensions folder and the Microsoft SDC tasks folder and files are not copying over as part of the msi build. I've had to add these folders as additional resources that get added to the msi package.

Never had this problem before so will have to look into why this has occurred when time permits. This happens both on a fresh BTDF install and new biztalk project.

Thanks for getting back so promptly.

The MSI should not include an "MSBuild extensions folder" or an "SDC tasks folder". Can you provide any more information about this? Thanks.
