No <System.Workflow.ComponentModel.WorkflowCompiler> tag in web.config RRS feed

  • Question

  • We just deployed a fresh CRM with an existing database and there was problems with workflows. It never ran. After digging for a few hours, I realised that there is no <System.Workflow.ComponentModel.WorkflowCompiler> tag in the web.config. Pretty weird. What is the default content of it?

  • Hello Xsterx,

    Do you know what update rollup you are on?   Depending on the UR, you will have to make manual changs to the Web.Config.  It looks like you are using an unversioned Web.config per the following information

    The Web.config file is an unversioned file that is installed and managed by Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. Because it is an unversioned file that can be customized, it may require manual modification after the installation or removal of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM hotfix.

    Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Hotfix Installer behavior during the installation of unversioned files

    If the already installed version of a file has been modified since it was installed, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Hotfix Installer will not replace it with the latest version. This behavior assumes that if the file was modified, the modifications were intentional and should not be overwritten.

    Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Hotfix Installer behavior during the removal of unversioned files

    All affected files are reverted to the previously installed versions, regardless of whether they have been modified. This behavior assumes that the removal is performed to restore a previous state, even if that means overwriting changes that were made since that previous state.


    To resolve this issue, you must manually modify the Web.config file to apply supported changes that the installer did not apply during the installation. For more information about what changes must be made, see the "History of changes to the Web.config file" section. If the removal scenario from the "Summary" section occurs, you must reapply the customizations that the installer overwrote when the unversioned file was removed. To modify the Web.config file, follow these steps.

    Note As always, we recommend that you fully back up your system before you install or remove any hotfixes or update rollups.
    If you can provide me with the Update Rollup version you are on I will install the proper Update Rollup and post the information here.
