accelerator so there’s the few paths (BREConfigurator.exe.config) that need correcting
for some of the SDK tools. Which I can live with as their part of the SDK and this
isn’t quite baked BizTalk 2013 yet.
The part where I hit trouble is that during the tutorial once schemas + rules are
deployed, you are to drop a sample MT103_Sample.txt into a folder and viola – it appears
as XML in another folder.

– I had a whole series of errors. Called upon my trusted SWIFT guru Angelo whom could
just look at the message and tell me what bits to remove and I should replace parts
with a an Australian Bank who’s code is ‘XXXXSSBCXXX’ (scared me), we almost got the
