I have been handed a site that was upgraded from 2007 to 2010.

When I try to publish a workflow to the site using Sharepoint Designer I receive the error that the formservices.asmx file is missing.

enter image description here

In other words designer cannot connect to the webservice which publishes workflows.

Is this normal for a site upgraded from 2010 and what is the resolution?

thanks in advance.


  • Can you post your exact error messages? Also, check the Event Viewer and ULS logs on the SharePoint server for any errors logged when you try to do this. – John Chapman Oct 18 '13 at 20:41

Alternate Access Mapping was not configured in Central Admin for the internal url.
