Problem encountered installing on Windows 2000 

If you've installed BizTalk Server 2004 on the 'slipstream' SP4 Windows 2000 build, then when you get to the ConfigFramework wizard, you may well find that the file AUTHZ.DLL is missing from the Winnt\System32 folder.

If this is the case (and it almost certainly will be), then you'll need to re-install the full version of SP4 for Windows 2000. This will ensure that the AUTHZ.DLL file is installed, and you'll be able to run the ConfigFramework wizard.

You may be wondering who I am (or may not!), but I've been in the industry 16+ years working on a variety of systems from IBM mainframes as a CICS systems programmer, to developing on Unix and Windows based systems. At the moment, I'm currently working for a Microsoft Gold Partner in the UK called Solidsoft who specialise in systems integration using BizTalk Server. My position is generally dictated by what I'm doing, but normally as a solutions architect/consultant helping clients with their integration projects involving, yes you guessed it: BizTalk Server.
