I wonder if someone have some expreience about this issue. 

I getting this error when I build through TFS:
error MSB4061: The "GetBizTalkAppExists" task could not be instantiated from "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalk\5.0\DeploymentFramework.BuildTasks.dll".  

error MSB4061: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.BizTalk.ExplorerOM, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I some forums some say that this ExplorerOM does not support 64x platform, is that right. 

Do you know any workaround of this?

For Team Build 2010, in the build definition editor, under Advanced, there's a setting to run the tools as X86, X64 or Auto (the default).  It has to be X86.

Hello Tom, 

Thanks for the quick answer. 
I do run the MSBuild platform as x86.
Do you have any other suggestions?
