CRM 4.0 Workflow Wait condition bug

Published 6/30/2008 by Henry in CRM

While testing a workflow in CRM 4.0 we encountered the following situation.
The workflow runs when a custom entity is assigned to a person.
In this workflow a wait condition waits until a particular task is completed (activitystatus is completed).
The workflow never stops waiting, even when the task is completed.

You can imagine this is really annoying, I did a support call at Microsoft and after checking some settings, they told us this was a known issue and the were working on the fix.
A few days later we got the fix (KB951919), it is not in the public list of all CRM 4.0 updates and hotfixes, but there is a fix if you need it, just contact MS.

I'm having the same issue.  Did this hotfix correct the problem?  I'm hesitant to install the hotfix, as I it hasn't been fully tested by Microsoft.

It sure did. I know for a fact that MS did really give it a long testrun, because I had to wait untill they were ready.
I can not speak for Microsoft, but it did fix the problem for us.
