I found an interesting issue the other day while attempting to import a managed solution into our test environment. I had previously completed the solution import without issues but this time I received the following error:
This workflow cannot be created, updated or published because it was created outside the CRM web application. Your organization does not allow this type of workflow.
I’m not really sure why we got this error since the workflows were in fact created from the CRM application. You would normally receive this error if you created custom XAML workflows inside Visual Studio. To fix the problem, perform an iisreset on the CRM server and try the solution import again.
