Category: BizTalk Server 2009

Over the last months I’ve read a lot of articles why the MQSC Adapter is missing in the BizTalk Administration Console, but none of them are complete.

Installation guide
So in order to install the adapter, you need to install the client tool from HIS (Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems) and you will also need the to install the IBM WebSphere MQ Client or the IBM WebSphere MQ Transactional Client (which is part of the IBM WebSphere MQ Server).

Be aware that for any BizTalk version prior to BizTalk 2009 you can only run this adapter as a 32bit. You need to install the following KB939202 to force it to run as a 32bit on a 64bit environment.

Installation order

  1. Install the Microsoft BizTalk Server
  2. After the installation of the Microsoft BizTalk Server, don’t forget to configure the BizTalk Server using the Configuration Tool (if you skip the configuration, the BizTalk Adapters (MQSC, HostApps, DB2) will not be installed correctly
  3. Install the latest Microsoft BizTalk Server Cumulative Updates
  4. Install the IBM WebSphere MQ Client or the IBM WebSphare MQ Transactional Client
  5. Install the latest IBM WebSphere MQ FixPacks
  6. Install the Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems (1.0 : 2006, 2.0 : 2009) or the Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010, 2013 and check the BizTalk Adapters to install
  7. Install the latest Microsoft Host Integration Server Cumulative Updates


  • You are getting an error that the MQSC COM+ are not correctly registered

Check if the MQSC Com+ Object is registered (Administrative Tools => Component Services => My Computer => COM+ Applications => Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC

If it’s missing you can try the following to register the COM+ Objects again :

  • Go to the “Programs and Features”
  • Modify the Host Integration Server Installation by using the repair feature

If it’s still missing, please try the following commands :

  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe /u “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll” %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll”

If this is a 64-bit box, and they are installing the 64-bit MQSC adapter, then the commands would be slightly different (“Framework64” instead of “Framework”), so they would be:

  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe /u “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll” %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll”
  • The MQ Transactional is not working and you are getting an MQRC 2354

Check if you have installed the latest IBM WebSphere MQ FixPack :
