SharePoint Designer Workflow (WSP) Packager source-code released!

Source-code on CodePlex!

Recently I got a lot of requests to release the source-code of the SharePoint designer workflow packager. My idea was to wait a bit until I got time to clean up the code and  to fix some bugs.  But since I am still traveling this could take a while.

If you find any bugs, please feel free to become a contributor and upload your fixes 🙂

Installation notes

Be aware that there are still a couple of bugs in the code, and remember that you need C# 3.5 to be installed on your server to run this.

I won’t recommend running this on production servers unless you are a 100% sure that it works.

What’s next?

Depending on the feedback I might extend the workflow packager but it all depends on Microsoft’s roadmap on Workflows for SharePoint’s Next Release. Personally, I think that MS will port the web-based CRM 4.0 workflow editor to SharePoint, or create shared functionality for it, which would supersede this tool. Until then, I try to keep it updated with bug-fixes.

SPD Workflow Packer Source Release (And why I am a bit quiet)

Hi all,

First off, my apologies!The reason for me not blogging lately is because I am traveling Australia and New Zealand and it’s a bit hard getting wireless in my camper.

However, I am releasing the source code for the workflow packaging tool as soon as I can find a place to put it.

Until then, look at my view 🙂

I’m expected to be back and back to civilization in May 🙂
