Schedule Auto Start

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I'm using a scheduled auto start workflow that runs at a specific time (runs everyday). The workflow runs on the scheduled time untill I make a change in the schedule. After I change the time in the schedule and then publish, it not longer starts. Also, if i copy everything from that workflow project, then create another project and paste everything in the new project, then it runs as expected.

What is happening?

Have you tried restarting IIS/Symantec Workflow Server service?

On the Authentication Type property of the Publishing tab in the workflow is the project set to anything other than Anonymous Authentication?

What does the WF do? Does it require a UI? If not, try changeing it to a Monitoring project and install it as a Windows Service. I have over 50 of these and they work great.

If that is not possible, try opening hte shcedule.lbschedule file on the server itself and check the schedule.

It doesn't require a UI.

Looks like it decided to start working again today. I guess it has to refresh in IIS.

I will definately use a monitoring project next time I need something like this.
