This problem occurs many times when we are trying to deploy pipeline components (copy dll to folder: “C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server …\Pipeline Components”.

“cannot copy "custom pipeline component" as the earlier is in use”

CAUSE

  • Visual Studio has a lock on the file in order to show the pipeline components in the toolbox.

Or

  • Some BizTalk process is running BizTalk host and have a lock on the file

SOLUTION 1

  • Close Visual Studio and restart host instance to make sure the pipeline component dll get released.
  • And then deploy pipeline component.

SOLUTION 2

  • Rename file (it is much faster).
  • Restart host instance
  • Deploy pipeline component
  • And then delete old dlls
