I read from this forum and other google search of using the Windows Workflow Rules without Workflow. Do any one know the limitations/disadvantages for using it? Please respond.

Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.

State Machine workflows represent a different way of visualizing program logic. Rather than flowing from activity to activity like sequential workflows, State Machines transition from state to state. Learn about uses for State machines and see how to design and build a State Machine workflow with Windows Workflow Foundation.

Due to the distributed nature of a business process it makes sense for a workflow to be deployed as a distributed application. See how Windows Workflow and Web Services hold the key.

In last month's column, I presented a helpdesk workflow sample that focused on WindowsÃÂ® Forms client applications. This month I'll discuss ASP. NET workflow applications and the ability to expose a workflow as a Web service and invoke a Web service from a workflow.

Windows Workflow Foundation allows you to write workflow-based programs in terms of domain-specific activities that are implemented in CLR-based programming languages such as C# and Visual Basic. Here Don Box and Dharma Shukla get you started.

I have an ASP.Net MVC application manages process of forwarding some business entities to one another partner. At beginning of the process, the forwarding partner sends a request to every other partner. There are many receiving partners for the forwarding request, but only the first partner who responds with ACCEPT token will enter into the contract with the sending partner. When this happens, the process enters ACCEPTED state. When the process goes into ACCEPTED state, the same request previously received by other partners will enter into Cancelled state.
I am thinking using Windows Workflow Foundation to do this, but I am not sure if I should use one flow or multiple flows associating with the forwarding request flow. If multiple work lows are required, should they be all with the same structure, states, events, handlers, etc? Any flow executes Accept method enters Accepted state, and triggers all other flows' Cancel events.
Can this be done? Any other recommendation? Thank you.
I have created a sequential sharepoint workflow in WSP Builder in my Sharepoint Server and Deployed it.
But the workflows says Failed on start and retrying ans stops there forever says couldn't start the workflow.
I repaired .NET Framework 3.5sp1 installed
1. I tried again, in C Prompt: Lodctr "c:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation\perfcounters.ini" it says initiation file cannot be found
2 i again tried this C prompt Lodctr /R "c:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation\perfcounters.ini"
it says reloaded from the system restored
i am still getting the same error.
When i manually go to my C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation i can see a folder for SQL that's it nothing more than that..
I dont know what is happening i am trying it from 2 days and still no solution.
any ideas would be real great help for me.
