SPD 2010 Changes not Updating Workflow? RRS feed

  • Question

  • This has happened to me 2 times now and it is after I try to save recent changes to the workflow and a SPD msg box appears saying the workflow on the server is more recent than the one I'm working on.

    The first time I got this error I told it to Save as I am the only editor (brand new server), this time I Canceled and closed SPD.

    Now and as before no changes, whether Log to History, changing the body of an email, updates to list items have an effect on the servers workflow. It saves without error but the workflow on the server/list doesn't take the changes. The first time this happened I deleted all the Steps in the workflow except the Stop action and it continued to run performing all the steps. Not until I deleted the workflow did it actually stop affecting the list.

    I do not want to rebuild this workflow again, anyone else see this?

  • Turns out to be a SPD caching issue.
