Register-SPWorkflowService throws weird error Method not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    checked that WF Farm status is ok, SB Farm status also ok. Then tried to register WF service with this weird error:

    PS C:\Users\_user_prjsrv2013> Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "https://serverAliasFQDN/pwa" -WorkflowHostUri "https://serverMachineNameFQDN:12290" -ScopeName "WorkFlow" -AllowOAuthHttp -Force WARNING: Overwriting existing scope named "WorkFlow" in the workflow server. If another SharePoint farm was registered using this scope, that farmmay not be able to continue working with the workflow server unless re-registered under another scope name. Register-SPWorkflowService : Method not found: 'VoidMicrosoft.SharePoint.WorkflowServices.WorkflowServiceHelper.EnsureActivityAssembliesIsCorrect()'.

    No clue where can I start looking to troubleshoot this issue.

    Any help is appreciated,

  • Looks like you have already registered workflow service as "Workflow" . Trying changing the name

  • Hi,

    Please check. The issue is that SharePoint 2013 was installed on Windows Server 2012 R2.

    Hope this help.
