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