BETA SPD Workflow Export Utility on CodePlex!

Its on CodePlex!

In follow up of my two post regarding SharePoint designer workflows and I’ve now released the BETA utility to export the workflows and package them in a feature. However, its far from production ready, so I still need to do a lot testing and bug-fixing.

Note on this release

In this release you will find two zip files, one containing the beer sample as discussed in the previous post, and the utility it self.

I haven’t tested all the activities yet and I am not sure how it handles the task forms. If you have any comments or bugs please let me know by sending an mail to

You can download the utility at:

So, what’s next?

I’m releasing this tool as a part from a book I’m writing for my classes on building process and application templates for SharePoint. The book is expected to be released later this year.

  3. Any plans to release the source code to the SPDToolkit.Workflows.Foundation.DLL?

  4. Hi,

    I’ve created an SPD workflow, I exported it with SPDToolkit, and then added it to a feature created in visual studio with the VS2005 extensions for WSPBuilder. From this VS solution I got an .wsp solution.

    I’ve added the solution to my MOSS server using stsad -addsolution, and the deployed it.

    But now, when I go to the site features in a created blank site and try to activate the feature, I recieve an FILE NOT FOUND error.

    And I get this on LOGS:

    System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘System.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. File name: ‘System.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

    So you have a reference to Frraamework 3.5 in the DLL SPDToolkit.Workflows.Foundation.dll and my server has installed Framework 3.0.

    How can I do if I want to avoid installing Framework 3.5 on my server?
