Unable to open the project. The workflow associated with the project has been terminated unexpectedly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sometimes when I open my demand I get this error - ‘Unable to open the project. The workflow associated with the project has been terminated unexpectedly. Please contact your administrator.’

    Actually I’ve been working on EPM for one year and I’ve been through this error many times. Before I used to think that this is the problem of my custom-workflow. But this time I’ve been getting this error on the new site where I’ve been using Sample Proposal Workflow for all my demands.

  • Hi Dinesh--

    Please check the ULS logs for more details. So does this work when you change or restart the workflow?

    What is the service pack /CU level on project server 2010? Just a guess, Do you get the error when the workflow is completed successfully & you open it from PWA? If yes, You may need to validate the Dec 2011 CU:

    Assume that a workflow for a project is successfully completed. When you try to open the project by using PWA after 60 days, you receive the following error message:
    Unable to open the project. The workflow associated with the project has been terminated unexpectedly.


    Hope that helps.
