When attempting to export categories from Workflow, the error below is displayed and no export occurs.


HTTP Error 500.21 - Internal Server Error

Handler "ExportCategory" has a bad module "ManagedPipelineHandler" in its module 

Detailed Error Information

Module: IIS Web Core 

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler 

Handler: ExportCategory 

Error Code: 0x8007000d 

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ProcessManager/Hierarchy/ExportCategory.axd? HierarchyCategoryID=1c151350-784c-11e1-8f0a-000c294f470d 

Physical Path:  C:\Program 


 Servicedesk 7.1 Sp2

The ExportCategory.axd file is a dynamically generated file that gets created as part of the export process. This file can't be generated by an application using an Application Pool that is running in Classic mode. 


Modifying the web.config that controls the Export process to force the specific process to load in Integrated Mode will allow the export to function properly.

  1. Go to Program Files\Symantec\Workflow\ProcessManager\Hierarchy
  2. Make a copy of the web.config file
  3. Open the web.config file
  4. Find the line below and add the bolded text

<add name="ExportCategory" verb="*" path="ExportCategory.axd" type="LogicBase.Ensemble.Hierarchy.ExportCategory, LogicBase.Ensemble"  preCondition="integratedMode" />

     5. Save the file and restart IIS.
