This week I encountered a curious situation while I was developing a new BizTalk solution. After creating my new project, I tried to add a new schema to the solution, and to my astonishment, the item "Schema" had disappeared from the Visual Studio window "Add new item" in the "BizTalk Project items –> Schema Files" options, as you can see in the picture bellow:

Even if I choose the option "BizTalk Project items", that gives all BizTalk item, the Schema item was not there. By the way, this problem appeared from one day to another.

CAUSE

Well, unfortunately, I don’t know exactly why this problem occurred, but I believe that some dependence has become corrupted.

SOLUTION

To fix this issue, or similar problems, you need to repair Visual Studio 2010.

To repair Visual Studio:

  • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Programs.
  • Click Programs and Features and then select the Visual Studio Edition you installed.
  • Click Uninstall/Change.
  • In the setup wizard, select Repair or Reinstall and then click Next.
  • Follow the remaining instructions in the installation wizard to finish.

After repairing Visual Studio, The "Schema" item was once again available:
