Issue was fixed by providing a custom build for BizTalk 2013 since the user wasn't able to make use of assembly redirection in their production environment.

Hi Secrets,

This was done by design to ensure that the framework is compatible with all versions of BizTalk 2010+. Microsoft chose to update the assembly version on this specific assembly, not the norm for most of their BizTalk assemblies. The framework targets the assembly version used by BizTalk 2010 but with a config change the version can be retargeted to make the framework compatible with later versions of BizTalk.

The best way to cater for this is to add an assembly redirect to your BizTalk config files which would fix the problem, take a look at the following article written by my colleague Mahindra for more info -

If for whatever reason you are not keen to modify your BizTalk config files then let me know and I'll create an installer which specifically target BizTalk 2013 for you.

Hi Johann,
yup already using this assembly redirect on my dev machine.
But this is not possible for Production environment, please create the installer for BizTalk 2013.

Hi secrets,

I've uploaded an installer that specifically targets BizTalk 2013 so you will not need to use any assembly redirections to get the BRE Pipeline Framework v1.5.4 to work. There are no differences between this build and the core build besides the reference to the Microsoft.BizTalk.Interop.SSOClient assembly.

Will you please download the installer from the below link and let me know if this fixes your problem

Hi Johann,
I can't download it:

There are no downloads associated with this release.

Hi secrets,

Sorry about that, I've uploaded the file again now. Can you please try again at the same link?
