InvalidCastException when Generating Documentation

Oct 1, 2014 at 3:41 PM
First of all, thank you very much, for migrating the documenter tool to Biztalk 2013! :-)

And here my question: When I press "Generate Documentation" (event if I do not change the configuration), I get an InvalidCastException. The (German) exception message is "Das Objekt des Typs 'System.DBNull' kann nicht in Typ 'System.String' umgewandelt werden." The error comes from Microsoft.BizTalk.ExplorerOM.PartyAlias.get_Name(), Microsoft.Services.Tools.BiztalkOM.POarty.Load(),..., Microsoft.Services.Tools.Biztalk.Documenter.Form1.GenerateDocumentation().

I guess that the program tries to read the parties, but something is not configured in the BizTalk Database as expected?

Thanks for helping

Hi Chanser

Thanks for you feedback.

If you could answer the questions I've posed in the work Item, that would be useful.
