BizTalk 2016 Project Template missing VS 2015

Hi,

I came across weird scenario. All of sudden BizTalk Project template went missing from Visual Studio 2015. I have Visual Studio 2017 as well but it was working fine since last 2-3 years.
I googled and found biztalk-project-template-missing-from-vs-2015, but when I tried to follow the steps, it threw a dependency alert for Visual Studio MPF 16.0 must be present before installation can continue.

Does anyone has any idea what is causing this template missing and unable to install MPF 16.0

Appreciate any help.


Thanks,
Harish

Hi Harish,

You can follow steps to add this reference into visual studio:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Platform\Visual Studio MPF directory

  2. Create a folder (16.0) with a file (extension.vsixmanifest), which is like:

  3. Copy these codes into extension.vsixmanifest file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Vsix Version="1.0.0" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/vsx-schema/2010">;
<!-- VSIX Manifest for the Visual Studio Managed Package Framework (MPF) 15.0 Assemblies -->
<Identifier Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.MPF.16.0">

or absence of the MPF Assemblies:

-->
</Vsix>

4. Restart Visual Studio to install Biztalk extension
