Have you tried clearing the local cache files? This seemed to work for me – user2337029 Jun 10 '15 at 16:36

Are you using the steps described in this MSDN instruction?


As you are unable to see SharePoint 2013 as Platform Type, please find the note from the documentation:

If you do not see SharePoint 2013 Workflow as an available platform type then Workflow Manager is not configured to work with the SharePoint Server 2013 farm.

Check out the steps for Installing and configuring workflow for SharePoint Server 2013 and Installing and Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0

I have an installation of SP 2013 and SPD 2013. I am not able to see SP 2013 in the Platform Type. I believe this is an issue. I am not sure why it is missing. Any suggestions? – garvon-77 Dec 7 '12 at 0:48
