    I have read conflicting statement regarding medium trust support, but that doesn't make sense, either it works in medium trust or it doesn't. So which is it?

    "..." (nothing here)
    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/installation-and-administration-guide/installing-sitefinity/system-requirements.aspx

    "However, we are testing Sitefinity 4.0 under medium trust and we will provide support for it."
    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-4-x/general-discussions/feature-request-medium-trust.aspx

    "Medium trust is not supported since we use Windows Workflow Foundataion. WWF does cannot run in Medium Trust."
    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-4-x/deployment/deployment-to-a-web-host.aspx

    "Depends if the Medium trust is configured to support WWF. If it is configured, you can use Sitefinity in it."
    "We require Full trust, but are working on a solution for Medium trust as well. This requirement comes from WWF, which can run in Full trust only."

    Thanks!

    Hello Michiel Van Oosterhout,

    Unfortunately Sitefinity 4.x still does not support Medium trust. This is due to the WWF4 activation that requires Full trust in order to be operational.

    Ok, I understand.

    Do you think that it's possible to use Sitefinity under medium trust in a way that you will not run into the WWF4 requirements for full trust? perhaps by not using certain features of the CMS?

    Hello Michiel,

    Unfortunately no - every time you try to publish a page or a content item the workflow is fired. This is simply by design.

    Best wishes,

    Hi There

    I'm guessing that WWF4 still requires full trust, and therefore the latest version of Sitefinity still cannot be run in Medium Trust mode.  Is that correct?

    Is it on the road map to make Sitefinity supported in Medium Trust mode?

    Thanks,
    Antoine

    Hi Antoine,

    Unfortunately WWF4 still requires full trust, even in the latest version of Sitefinity. This is our current roadmap -
