Custom Workflow Error: The Workflow files were saved but cannot be run

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi all,

I'm wondering if someone would have any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this custom workflow issue.

Recently we can't attach any SharePoint Designer workflow to any list in a farm. We get this error message:

"Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run. Unexpected error on server associating the workflow"

The standard workflows from UI seems to be working fine. Also user defined workflow is enabled. In the past I was able to fix similar issue with another farm following this post (remvoing SP designer custom workflow activities entries)- but does not look like this is the case this time.

Nothing in the logs regarding this error. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

workflow starts before files are saved?

  

I have a sharepoint designer workflow associated with a document lib. The workflow is triggered when a new item is created or modified. The workflow will update attributes of the item.

The problem comes that for small files, the workflow works. For bigger file (even 0.5 mb), either the workflow failed to update the item or the file was saved as 0 byte.

Any recommendations?

Literal Error when trying to pass custom types to my workflow

  

Guys,

I have a simple procedural workflow that determines how to assign a real estate lead to an agent. It takes three input parameters, and 1 output parameter. The only unusual aspect of this activity, (if you call it unusual), is that I'm passing in complex objects rather than types. I've created a lead and agent objects like this:

    public class LeadProxy
    {
        public int PK { get; set; }
        public int Amount { get; set; }

   }

    public class AgentProxy
    {
        public int PK { get; set; }
        public int Senority { get; set; }
        public int CurrentLeadCount { get; set; }
    }

My current input arguments are:

  <x:Members>
    <x:Property Name="Agents" Type="InArgument(scg:List(local:AgentProxy))" />
    <x:Property Name="Lead" Type="InArgument(local:LeadProxy)" />
    <x:Property Name="AssignToAgent" Type="OutArgument(local:AgentProxy)" />

Creating a custom Workflow + Custom workflow task + complete = error

  

Hi everyone,

I am using a custom workflow in SharePoint 2010, with one task in it using a Custom Content type deriving from the "Workflow Task" type, with a custom Edit form.

From this point everything is fine, I can create my Task, open it from the task list with my custom webpage as form, but when I want to update my task to complete it, i get a very weird message that I didn't find any help about: "The workflow's parent item associated with this task is currently in the recycle bin, which prevents the task from being completed".

I Just have my Custom workflow using a Custom Workflow task, I don't see where this should come from... I even looked in the Recycle Bin, but it was empty as I was thinking it would be...

Any chances someone got a solution on this?

Cheers, Ben

Access Denied error on custom workflow task list item

  

We have created a two level custom approval workflow on (an InfoPath) form library using SharePoint Designer (SPD) with first and second approver. The workflow works fine as long as the approver is in the Site Collection Administrators group. The approvers who are not in the admin group can get to the custom Task form for approve/reject, but they can only view the form. When they click on the “Edit Item” button of the task list item, they receive “Access Denied” error. We have given these approvers “Approve”, “Contribute” permissions on the Form library and even Full Control on the task form list (all items). Note: The users use their domain account and the error they are getting is: Access Denied, You are currently signed as DomainName\LoginName, Sign in as a different user.

We have read through several forums and have found people having the same issue. We tried all of the suggestions described in the following links - but no success so far.

Inconsistent error message on Custom Workflow.

  

Recently on custom workflows I've been getting this error message when trying to navigate to you a custom task form on a workflow.  I had to enable logging to see it instead of "Unkown Error." 

Only Content controls are allowed directly in a content page that contains Content controls.   at System.Web.UI.FileLevelPageControlBuilder.AppendLiteralString(String text)
   at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.ProcessLiteral()

This message only occurs randomly and if I hit refresh a few times the task form will display.  This message occurs in two custom workflows. I'll start testing the out of box workflows and see if this message comes up.

Proper setup using Infopath and Custom Workflow using VS 2008

  

Hi,

I have been struggling for a couple of days, trying to set up a decent
structure for an Infopath project using a custom workflow using Visual Studio 2008.

I had a solution with two projects:

1) Sharepoint 2007 Workflow

2) Infopath 2007 form w/code-behind.

I included the xsn, in the VS solution, but after a day or two,
something went wrong, and I lost some work. I still do not know what
happened, but I could not get my changes to persist afterthat  Doing research I have read that this
stucture, using Infopath xsn, within VS does not work correctly with Source
Control. I am using VSS.

So I since made a change to the set-up so that the .xsn (form template) is separate from
Visual Studio. However, I need to leave the code-behind in VS, since I need to debug
it.

This is my latest problem. I have been unable to attach to the correct
process, as VS generates cachse files, and who knows what else.

My question is simple. What is the supported method for debugging InfoPath
code/behind, which uses a Sharepiont Workflow?

I just also want to say that one should not have
to spend a few days just trying to setup a working development environment.

This should be trouble-free, but it is far from being so. I

Nintex Workflow Error: No workflows are waiting for a BizTalk message [...] No processing has been d

  

Hi,

I created a Workflow with Nintex Workflow 2007 (on SharePoint 2007) to send/receive data to BizTalk 2009. It worked fine already. But now I get the following error mesage in the EventViewer:

Nintex Workflow; Build: 11000 (http://ls457/_layouts/nintexworkflow/BiztalkHandler.ashx)
No workflows are waiting for a BizTalk message with message Id of 'GeneralAccessRequest_2010-08-23T15_00_04_44961212B370C554EDFAC41C1201ED6CEFB' on teamsite http://ls457/sites/testapp. No processing has been done.

What could that mean? Any ideas? I definitely changed nothing on the orchestration or BizTalk administration. The BizTalk action sends the data correctly to it's destination (database), but it seems that nintex doesn't receive any return data. I don't think it's a BizTalk problem, because in the BizTalk Message Tracking Database the Message is listet, so it has been sent correctly by BizTalk. But the handler probably has problems to find/receive this message.

Kind regards,

Markus

Custom sequence activity deriving from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity

  
Hi, I try to create custom sequence activity. I found some sample (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wfprerelease/thread/f54e8eb2-29d9-46f6-ad96-766fe6fad333/). But this custom activity looks ugly (to separate nested activity using ellipses instead of arrows). My question is - how to create custom sequence activity, which will look like sequence activity. I also found this sample - <ContentPresenter x:Uid="ContentPresenter_1" Content="{Binding}" Style="{x:Static sacdt:DesignerStylesDictionary.SequenceStyle}"/> When I used this ContentPresenter my custom activity looks like System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity, but I couldn't put on it another activity. I also created class, which derives from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity, but I couldn't see it in toolbox. My question is - how to create class, which derives from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity and is visible in toolbox or how to use ContentPresenter for sequence activity, which allows put on itself another activity.
