"Error Loading Workflow" Visual Studio .NEt 2005

Its great day  and i have decided to create an "Custom workflow" got one sample from internet and life seems to be soo easy/But the truth is not that easy ...
As soon as i started to create a Workflow project using sharepoint workflow template which u can get by downloading the ECM Starter kit "http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=38CA6B32-44BE-4489-8526-F09C57CD13A5&displaylang=en "
Well started the project and selected sequential work flow and was shocked to get the error message :

Error Loading Workflow


An error occurred while loading the workflow. Please correct the following error and try reloading the document to view the workflow. :(


Thought of doing soem research but no luck initially  .Took a tea break and then started with a revitalized mind. It came to my notice that i am missing three components from the project reference

  • Microsoft.sharepoint.workflowactions.dll
  • Microsoft.office.workflow.tasks.dll
  • Microsoft.sharepoint.dll
Added these references and wolaah ...Things started working ...
Life is real good ....
