Using IBM MQ 8 Client together with BizTalk 2013/2013 R2
When IBM released the IBM MQ 8 Client, there was no way to use it with BizTalk because the client was compiled in C++ 2012 and BizTalk 2013/2013 R2 still uses an older C++ Runtime. Officially this is not supported by Microsoft, but it works. Microsoft actually supports only IBM MQ Client 7.1 and 7.5 together with BizTalk Host Integration Server 2013 (MQSC). After some discussions with IBM and after some month, IBM decided to ship with its package also the C++ dlls compiled in 2005 Runtime.
The C++ 2005 Runtime dlls are available in IBM MQ Client 188.8.131.52 : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24037500
