Sharepoint designer Workflow error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am working with SP Designer workflow and getting following error when there are many Approval Tasks (if the tasks is more than 2, this error is encountered usually):

    Errors were found when compiling the workflow.The workflow files were saved but cannot be run.
    Advanced: "Unexpected error on server associating the workflow"

    however when the WF is simple i dont get this error. It usually happens when there are many approval tasks in the WF.

    Any input/suggestion will be of great help. Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Arun,

    You need to check the more relevant error information under 12/LOGS folder.

    You can check whether there are some invalid data or logic error in your SharePoint Designer workflow per this article troubleshooting workflow errors,

    And check whether there are some corrupt workflow assebly refference in web.config per this post with same error message,


    Regards, Daniel
