Orchestration Designer Crash

I recently encountered a troubling problem while creating a BizTalk 2006 R2 solution. Everything was working fine until I tried to open the Orchestration Designer to edit one of the orchestrations I had been working of for a couple of days. Visual Studio crashed immediately. I tried a few things, but I could not open any orchestration without Visual Studio crashing (no errors in event log, no dialog, nothing...). I finally fixed it by backing up and deleting my Visual Studio profile. The profile information is stored in a folder. This folder is located in C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0. I don't know what got messed up in the profile. Clearly some sort of VS/BizTalk bug.

Hi Walter,

The error that you were getting, was it unable to load ODP Package or something like that. I'm also running into an issue with loading the orchestration in the designer and I tried reinstalling Visual Studio to see if that would help but I still got the same error

Did you try to delete VS profile directory?
