FIX: BizTalk Server Administration displays incorrect or blank application name for some orchestration instances after you add a new MessageBox database in BizTalk Server 2006 R2

After you add a new MessageBox database in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, the BizTalk Server Administration shows an incorrect or blank application name for some orchestration instances. When this problem occurs, you cannot receive the expected query results when you search for the orchestrations in BizTalk Server Administration.

This problem does not occur if you select the Disable new message publication option when you add a new message box.
This problem occurs because of an error in the Btswmiprovider.dll file. Because of this error, certain data may be missing for messages that are delivered to the newly created MessageBox database.
