HI,

There is a sample and demo video of how workflows can be hosted in BizTalk Server 2006. The "BizTalk Adapter for Windows Workflow Foundation sample" is a tool that will create a BizTalk project capable oh hosting a WF workflow in BizTalk Server.

There's some info and a link to a video here:

Hi,

This will depend greatly on the application. It my be challenging if not impossible to modify an existing application to provide workflow hosting capabilities.

One option may by to host the workflows in a Windows service, independent of the application, and use custom activites to communicate with the CRM system using an API, or web services.
