  • Good News,

    - Downloaded and installed the VS 2012 Express edition
    - Able to develop, debug, register the plugin developed in VS. So I assume that we can develop Custom Workflow Activities as well.
    - Didn't check for SSRS development, if the patch is available for installation for Express edition for report server project templates, i believe it will work too.

    HTH!

    Thanks,
    Abhi
