Hey, just working through the MS Course 2158A, doing these courses is a good way to tidy up loose ends and discovered the BTSAsmExt.dll = the Biztalk Assembly Viewer.

This little utility allow one to see those assemblies and their components which have been installed into the GAC but what I find it useful for is that it's a nice & quick little way to view all the xml which makes up orchestrations and their correlation sets, messages & variables, maps, schemas, pipelines and physical ports (as opposed to logical orchestration ports).

It's aslo good for:

- Seeing which assemblies have been deployed

- View assembly attributes such as version

- See if an assembly has any referenced assemblies

- Add/Remove assemblies

- Launching the Biztalk Deployment Wizard

To install it ... 

Once installed look under MyComputers  in Windows Explorer for Biztalk Server Assemblies
