Workflow not saved

Hi all,

We experience the problem that workflows strangely won't be saved in the repository, hence when we open the workflow afterwards, we still have a blank sheet.

But when we "save as" the file to another location, it contains the desired content.

Software used:

Server: 5.5 SP05 Patch2 Hotfix1 (

Data Manager & Workflow: 5.5 SP05 Patch2 (

(this problem was not mentioned in the Release Note of the later hotfixes, thus I haven't upgraded yet)

I tried Visio 2003 Standard and Visio 2007 Professional.

While some sources state that the Visio Professional is required, others are not that precise. Plus, there is no error or error message when the Workflow component starts Visio Standard, which I would expect if it doesn't work.

So my main question:

What could be the root of the problem? "Try Visio 2003 Professional" is no possible solution unless this is without any doubts the only problem here.

Secondary objective is to definitely figure out whether Visio Professional is needed - and was is intended to happen when Visio Standard is used.

Best regards,
