"Unable to load workflow action from the server. Please contact server administrator" Error message in Sharepoint Designer 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have created a simple workflow in Sharepoint Designer 2010 one month back to trigger a mail on daily basis.

    It is working fine, but now when we tried to edit the same, following error is getting popped up.

    As a resolution we restarted the server, but that didn’t help.

    Please help us in this regard.

  • I restored a site collection and started receiving this same error when trying to edit the workflows.  It ended up being the account I was logging into SPD with didn't have permissions to the site.  Once I added the account as a site collection admin, they opened fine and I was able to edit them.
