I added a Page Flow Project and added a new page flow definion to the project, but when I double click my PageFlow1.cs that was created automaticly or the page flow that I created, visual studio opens the code editor not the page flow designer.

I have WWF tools for VS2005 installed because when I try do add a machine state workflow the designer works.

Does anyone know what is the problem?

Compile the entire solution. Close all documents, close Visual Studio. Open the solution again, then it should work. There is a thread about this problem.

Hi.

The WCSF Knowledge Base (Known Issues / Fixes category) contains a post on how to fix this problem:

Create a .reg file like the one below.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v2.0.50727\AssemblyFoldersEx\WCSF
@="C:\\Program Files\\Reference Assemblies\\WCSF\\"

Change the value of the "@" (Defualt) key to the directory where your WCSF assebmlies are located. Save the file. Close all VS instances. Apply the .reg file. Open VS and try to open a pageflow now.

Thanks.
