Find here the latest version of MBV.

  • 一个不错的收集Biztalk MessageBox信息的工具。

  • 이미 BizTalk 서버를 이용해서 개발하시거나 관리하시는 분들은 잘 아시고 계실 것으로 압니다만 MessageBoxViewer는 BizTalk서버의 실행 상태나 설정등을 한눈에 알아

  • Thanks for BizTalk MsgBoxViewer download links

  • Hello, Let me discuss about a new feature that I introduced in version 10.11 that I released recently

  • Thanks jpierauc,

    We teach alot of BizTalk Administrator courses and tools like this (SQL vs. BTS AdminConsole) are always popular with our students, so we go out of way to try them out and incorporate them in our courses.

    I'll send you a video clip of any administrator course that includes a demo of this tool in our online classes at

  • Does this version of MBV run also on X64 platform ?

  • Ok, launched the current version on X64 - it launches OK.

  • Hi Tskika,

    Yes it is running ok on x64

    Some important info however :

    1) As MBV is 32 bits, some queries of REGISTRY type will look ONLY in the 32 bit portion of the registry of a x64 (limitation of .NET) ! so if some reg entries of your 32 registry have different values (ex for MSDTC) than the x64, some results can be wrong in the report.

    I will workaround that in a futur release by creating .VBS queries to access regkeys in VBS scripts instead of doing that in C#.

    2) Remember anwyay that you can run MBV on any server and not only BT Server. When runnin on a non-BT server, you just have to specify manually the BizTalk Mgmt db location.

  • Hi,

    I have a strange problem running the MBV in my servers that I hope you can help me with.

    Whenever I run the MBV, it always stops at a certain point. Looking at the Status.log, it appears to stop at the middle of a line (e.g. 17:02:50.6811483         GENERATING TEMP VB) an always when it reaches 216KB.

    Heres the catch. if I change the querys (disable Running Services and Server Date), it stops at a different line in the Status.log but again when the Status.log reaches 216KB.

    Does this makes any sense?

    OS Version: Windows 2003 5.2 R2 Standard x64 Edition (Build 3790.srv03.sp2_rtm.070216-1710: Service Pack 2)

    Biztalk Server Version: 3.6.1404.0 (Enterprise Edition)



  • Hi Nelson,

    which build do you use ? can you try with latest if you use prev version ?

    is it same when you run it on a different server ?


  • Hi,

    It's a great tool! We recently upgrade from Biztalk 2006 to 2009.  Does this tool works for BizTalk 2009?  Are there any changes in performance counters?


  • Hi Kelvin,

    Thanks first for you comment!

    yes MBV is working perfectly with BizTalk 2009

    I did not implement changes recently in the perfmon counters query; can I know which type of changes you would hope ?


  • It works great in BizTalk 2009! Thanks!

    I don't have any specific perfmon counters in mind, just wondering if there were changes for BizTalk 2009.  Thanks again.

  • Hi JP,

    MBV gives me the warning below on my BizTalk servers and SQL Server:

    MSDTC Settings on Server Maybe Not configured correctly (Current flags : 'NetworkDtcAccess'=0-'NetworkDtcAccessInbound'=0-'NetworkDtcAccessOutbound'=0-) !

    However, I know MSDTC is working. DTCPing, DTCTester and BizTalk 2009 SQL adapter all works fine.  May be the registry settings on the servers are different than what MBV expected due to 64-bit OS?

    BizTalk Server


    OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit

    BizTalk: BizTalk 2009 Enterprise (3.8.368.0)

    SQL Server


    OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit

    SQL: SQL Server 2008 Enterprise 64-bit

  • Hi JP,

    I download the lastest MBV and the MSDTC warning went away.  I'm now getting a red error "BizTalk is not Supported on Windows 2008 R2".  Thanks for pointing it out!  Good catch!
