Today I ran into a problem configuring the WSS Adapter for BizTalk 2006. In the configuration wizard I just couldn't choose a web site for the adapter that would satisfy the configuration wizard. I got this error:

And I was pretty tired of it :-) Especially because I was sure WSS was installed on this web site, the web site was extended with WSS and everything should have been ok.

Anyway, some searching on the net gave me a hint as to what was going on. I found an article on topxml.com that helped me. In short, I had installed Windows Sharepoint Services on a web site I had created for this purpose, but I had forgotten to make sure the web site was running ASP.NET 2.0 before installing WSS. This made WSS run on .NET 1.1 and BizTalk 2006 has a requirement that it must run under .NET 2.0.

So in order to register ASP.NET 2.0 with IIS and upgrade my WSS installation to use .NET 2.0, I ran the following two commands:

"c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe" -i

"c:\program files\common files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\BIN\STSADM.exe" -o upgrade -url http://localhost:4242 -forceupgrade

The :4242 is because my WSS web site is configured to run on this port.

After this, there were no problems, and I could then configure the WSS adapter. I didn't need to restart the configuration wizard - I just had to select the default web site and then select my WSS Site again.

Hope this helpes someone. Should you have comments, please go ahead.
