  • there was 1 custom dll installed. but i have already remove it by delete dll from gac, restore web.config and delete custom .action file.

    after delete the dll the error occured and all the workflow in the site don't start.


    when manually start a workflow, it fails and an error display in workflow history list :

    • <workflowname> can't start.


    when create workflow in spd these are 2 errors occur :

    1. error 1: can't connect to server. ???
    2. error 2: (1,1) The root activity type is invalid .
