BizTalk Development Environment

It’s surprising how often I get asked about the order of installing Visual Studio and BizTalk Server.  The BizTalk Developer edition installs the SDK and Visual Studio components into Visual Studio that are necessary to develop BizTalk Server solutions.  When creating a development environment install Visual Studio first.  I always install just C# and web development tools excluding things like Visual Basic and SQL Express.  Then run the BizTalk installer to install the Visual Studio templates etc. Be sure you are installing BizTalk developer edition otherwise you won’t get the developer tools.
