When you try to export a Microsoft Transaction Server assembly as an XML file, Microsoft Visual Studio Designer crashes and generates an error message. Therefore, the XML file is not created.


This issue occurs because the Cobol redefines are not processed correctly when they are exported to XML.


The hotfix that resolves this issue is included in cumulative update package 9 for Host Integration Server 2010.

For more information about how to obtain this cumulative update package, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

A similar issue may occur if you try to export the Transaction Server assembly by using the XmlImportExport.exe command line tool. In this case, although the tool fails to create an XML file, you do not receive an error message.
