When I try to create a new WF in my Sharepoint Designer I get following error:

The list of workflow actions on the server references an assembly that does not exist. Some actions will not be avaliable. The assembly strong name is "Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkFlowActions, Version=,Cultureneutral,PublickeyToke=

Does any on know how to fix this problem?

This is happening when the workflow is run? or is it occuring on the deployment of the workflow? – xdhmoore Feb 28 '12 at 16:39
This occurs during creating a new workflow in workflow designer. – MOI Feb 29 '12 at 8:34
Did you ever solve this error? – TempaC Jun 6 '13 at 13:25

I will sometimes get this prompt when SharePoint Designer 2010 is not running with administrative credentials for the local computer. I haven't been able to pin down anything more specific than that, but try launching it by right click on the icon and choosing "Run as administrator"
