Hello all,

I'm a little problem with Sharepoint Designer with Custom activities ...

The installation works fine, I see Customs actions in SP, but when I want to select one, nothing occurs ...

I don't see the feature in the feature list, in the First site and other (?)

My configuration : MOSS 2007 stand alone.

Very thanks for help, and sorry for my bad english (french men)

Hi Faro,

I had the same difficulties as you discribed. After I looked around in the central administration, I saw that the feature was deployed. But then I went tot the "application management" page and explored the option "manage Web application features". I selected the web application for which I wanted to activate the custom workflow activities. After I activated the "Useful Sharepoint Designer Activities 0.5.0 Alpha" for the selected webapplication it all seems to work just fine!

You can go to the page directly by entering this URL: "([URL Central administration]\/_admin/ManageWebAppFeatures.aspx". Remember, in the upper right corner you can select the webapplication where you want to deploy the custom workflow activities.

Good luck,
