I'm JUST starting with workflows, and created my first one. We're running 2010 foundation, and I'm using the basic 3-stage workflow that's included.
I'm linking to a Word document in a library, and it's just a simple "do you approve of this document" workflow.
The email notifications about the task send properly, but when we click on the "open task" button from either Outlook or SharePoint, we get a dialog box that's showing about 1/3 loaded and says "Workflow Task details are being retrieved from the server. It's unresponsive to clicks (we need to force it to end in task manager) and it's flickering madly like it's going through screen refreshes. And CPU usage is up to abuot 70%. It looks and feels like some kind of infinite loop.
This dialog appears BOTH when we click e-mail links and when we navigate to the running workflows from within the library.
Has anyone ever seen or heard of anything like this? Does anyone know the right places to look or the right questions to ask about how to fix the problem?
