SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have an issue with a list that has some custom workflows we have created in SharePoint Designer.

Each list item has 3 workflows attached to them, but the workflows just seem to sit at a ‘Starting’. If you terminate the workflow it seems to kick it next time the timer service runs and then its ok. Its just when item is created automatically its not working. Any ideas what I should be looking for?

If you recently applied the CU updatd to Sharepoint it may be your problem. See http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/da-DK/sharepointadminprevious/thread/5a6e6e83-b59f-4099-a86f-a07723ff2b98
