How to import custom activities into SharePoint designer 2007

  Asked By: Demarco    Date: Sep 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 1650

know that the activity's dll has to be signed with public key and it should be a strong named assembly and placed in GAC.
But after placing in GAC, how would I tell to the designer that there is a new activity that can be used in workflow wizard.

What are the steps to import custom activity?
Are there any special steps to be done during installation of an activity so that SP designer 2007 will become aware of the new activity?

I found the procedure to import  custom activity into SPD 2007.

1)Promote properties in your activity in VS
2) Add an xml entry to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\Workflow\wss.actions (see math activity as an example), or use your own .actions file in the same directory.
3) Add the activity dll to the web.config file in one of the web.config files in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\virtualdirectories (search for Microsoft.sharepoint.workflowactions in the files and put it adjacent to those)
