SharePoint Designer - Server-side activities - Workflow
I was trying to write a workflow for SharePoint Online in Designer when I came across the following error:
I have Visual Studio 2015 installed on my machine for some rudimentary scripting against SharePoint Online. ;ve found that it’s easier to work against the CSOM libraries using C#. Something about the PowerShell handles the enumerable types used by CSOM. All I know is that C# is the path of least resistance so I go for that. I came across several posts that talked about uninstalling and reinstalling both Visual Studio and Designer. That seemed a bit heavy-handed to me.
I also found posts that talked about uninstalling the Workflow Manager from add/remove programs. I couldn’t find that, but I did find something called the WCF RIA Services. Since my Visual Studio use is somewhat limited, I don’t think uninstalling it would have much lasting effect so I uninstalled it and was immediately able to create and edit workflows.
Please let me know if you find this helpful.
