As most of you, I downloaded the final pieces of BizTalk Server 2013 as soon as it was available on MSDN. Once I downloaded it, I decided to setup a clean BizTalk 2013 Development Machine. This post will highlight the issues I encountered during installation and configuration and how I resolved them.

First of a brief highlight of my machine (Single-Server) configuration
* Windows Server 2012
* SQL Server 2013
* One instance for BizTalk MessageBoxDb
* One instance for all other BizTalk databases
* Visual Studio 2012
* BizTalk Server 2013
* Server Memory 8GB
* Disk Space 40Gb

Below the issues I encountered and how I resolved them.

Issue #1:  Installing BizTalk Server

Error encountered:   Missing file ‘MSVCP100.dll’


  1. Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (both x64 as x86) 

Issue #2: BizTalk Configuration – BAM Tools

Error encountered: Could not install BAM Tools


  1. install SQL Server 2005 Notification Services
    x64 –
    x86 –
  2. set up database to use database-mail 
  3. configure BAM Alerts

Issue #3: BizTalk Configuration – BAM Portal

Error encountered: Could not install BAM Portal -> error with regards to “BAM Management Web Service User”
Error thrown: “Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.”
Actual exception: Log indicated ‘Cannot alter the role ‘NSSubscriberAdmin’, because it does not exist or you do not have permission.’


  1. Manually Add NSSubscriberAdmin DatabaseRole to BAM Alert Application Database

END Result

Well this was a quick post, but I hope that it might help you out; if you encounter the same issues
