FIX: Files are not written to an absolute path as expected in a BizTalk project
Consider the following scenario:
- On a computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, you create a BizTalk project in Microsoft Visual Studio.
- In the project Properties page in Visual Studio, you configure the output directory to an absolute path.
- You move the BizTalk project files from one drive to another drive.
- You open the BizTalk project.
- You build the project.
This problem occurs because the absolute path that you configured as the output directory is converted to a relative path. This relative path is saved in the BizTalk project file. For example, you create a BizTalk project that is located at C:\BizTalkProject\Project1\Project1, and you configure the output directory to C:\BizTalkProject\Output. In this case, BizTalk Server saves the output directory as the relative path ...\...\Output\.
