I've been looking for how to install and setup a WWF dev environment with the vs2005 workflow designer extensions but the web is full of outdated info about betas, CTP's etc...

I'm running XP Pro SP2 and VS2005 Pro. I know I need to install .NET 3.0 runtime. What else do I need to install and where can I find it

Thanks.

Scott,

You'll want to install the .NET Framework 3.0 runtime, as well as the Visual Studio Extensions for Windows Workflow Foundation. You can find links to the RTM versions of both at:

The 3.0 framework & SDK installed without issues. When I run the install for the VS2005 extensions, the cygwin installer pops up. I can't find any info about this on the net. Any ideas

I've never had any issues like that, though I don't have cygwin installed. That said, I've had it happen once, I believe with a different tool.

Try just renaming the original extensions file to a .zip file, and manually extract the files, then run the MSI there. I think the self-extracting fiile sometimes ends up running the wrong .MSI file in the temp directory.

That worked. Thanks.
