Running workflows

I tripped over an interesting issue recently regarding the running of PowerShell workflows.

Consider the world’s simplest workflow

workflow test-w1 {“hello world”}

If I run this on a 32bit Windows 8  PowerShell machine – it works

If I run this on Windows 2012 (64bit) on PowerShell it works

if I run this on Windows 2012 PowerShell (x86) – it doesn’t work!

Be aware of how you are running your workflows
