The error you get is strange, however I believe that there is some configuration setting that is not set correctly on your end. Is it possible to provide us with error logs of Sitefinity? Also can you tell whether the WorkflowBaseURL is set? If possible, please open a support ticket, where you can share login credentials for the site, so we can log in and investigate further.
