Hi Daniel,

have you modified the web.config as described in the readme.txt?

Hi Christian, I am having the same issue.  I have modified the web.config on both web applications on my server, but it doesn't do anything....any suggestions?

do you have exact the same behavior? (...If i add an action to my workflow nothing happens) This usualy happens when the authorized type element in the web.config or the dll in the GAC is missing. I think you have already tried an  IIRESET and to restart SPD.

Do you have multiple frontend servers? The deploy.bat only deploys to the local server.

It's fixed... I had 2 web applications running removed them both, recreated my main site, and modified the web.config and it I guess it was possible I was modifying the wrong web.config, but since I only had 2 apps.. and modifed both those apps' web.configs... I figured it should have worked....anyway, I am good now.
