Workflow Installation Issues on 64bit Servers

This time when I am trying to install workflow, I have faced some issues, earlier no issues.

I want to share the same with my blog readers.

My System configuration: Windows 2008 R2 64 bit and IIS 7

I have already installed EP, for this EP, Sharepoint is running on 80 port number.

Default Web Site was in Stopped state, this was also on the same 80 port. I did not observe this and started the installation of Workflow for Dynamics Ax.

Installation is done with some warnings, I have ignored those warnings and tried to validate the URL from Ax client,  Basic  –> Setup –> Settings for workflow.

Then I have seen the following error

Error:     Error Client found response content type of ‘text/html; charset=utf-8’, but expected ‘text/xml’.

The request failed with the error message  …….. <some HTML type string error>

Later I have observed, that Default Web Site was in Stopped state, and port was assigned as 80, then I have changed the port number to 88.

Uninstalled the workflow setup, again installed the workflow, this time also workflow is installed with some warnings.

WARNING: Setup could not validate that the ASP.NET version on virtual directory ‘MicrosoftDynamicsAXWorkflow50’ was changed.

Again tried to Validated the URL from Ax Client. This time I have seen different error message.

Error:  The request failed with HTTP status 405: Method Not Allowed.

I have googled for this error and I got the solution like, need to change the properties of Application pool in IIS. I got the solution from the following link.


The property I have changed for the same, please have a look on the following picture.

After this property is changed, the workflow URL is validated successfully.
