    I ran into this error

    The requested sercie, 'http://www.mydomain.com/DefaultWorkflows/AnyMediaContentApprovalWorkflow.xamlx' could not be activated. See the server's diagnositc trace logs for more information.

    This happened when I wanted to upload images or when someone wanted to save a page.

    The reason was that I updated the server: Windows Update. I downloaded and installed the the updates but deceided to restart the server at night. After I restarted the server everything worked fine again.

    I am just posting this because sometimes error message might be missleading and someone is as stupid as me think to install now and reboot later might be a good idea :-)

    This was what the event log said:

    I don't know if the security updates on .Net Framework 4.0 might have caused this.

    Anyhow. I hope you can forgive me if nobody ever needs this post. And are happy if you run into the same problem.

    Have nice day.

    Hi Markus,

    It sems the handler mappings for *.svc and *.xamlx files were reset during the update of the server.

    All the best,
