Consider 2 lists. In one list, a workflow runs on an item and if conditions are right, it creates an item in another list, pauses for 5 min, then starts another workflow on that newly created list item (using CodePlex's old 'Start Another Workflow'
All of that works great, used it many times in many situations without fail, so long as I put a pause between the item creation and calling the workflow on the newly created item.
I've started writing my own custom workflow activities, all of them work just fine, up to 5 now, really useful to do little things that SPD Workflow can't do by itself. The 5th one I added was a very simple 'Now' routine. The class itself is
called 'GetNow' and has a 'RightNow' property that's DateTime and it works great. I have the need to stamp something with the current date/time, and I haven't modified the underlying record yet, and setting a Date/Time variable only takes Today or a

So my step compiles, updated my .ACTIONS file which holds the definition for the other 4 custom routines. I have the context 'in' parameter and one 'out' parameter for 'RightNow' defined as System.DateTime (which I think is where the problem is, possibly),
and it all works if I
