When workflows cancel right off the bat it has been my experience that something is wrong with your feature.xml or workflow.xml. Double and triple check those files for accuracy. If your TaskFormID (or whatever that attribute is) in Elements is incorrect it will cancel itself like you've experienced (basically it can't find the task form that you want to use).

I'm just using the samples in the ECM Starter Kit (the helloWorldsequential one). The only changes I made where to the batch file.

Any recommendations

Thanks

Can you two execute the OOTB Three-state workflow that comes with WSS 3.0

You must ensure that the dll gets copied to the GAC properly.

I got the problem solved , I think it was an access right issue basically you need to create an admin domain account for it , and then log in the system with it , and then do the sharepoint installation

I had the same problem, indeed you have to copy the DLL to the GAC, but also don't forget to copy the PublicKeyToken to your feature to deploy it.
