In my environment (SDL Tridion 2013 SP1 HR1) I have a workflow environment set-up and we only use Bundle Workflow.

I'm getting the following dialog message when I attempt to save a component based on a specific schema.

Workflow Script Type with Name 'VBScript' was not found in the configuration file

The log message is:

Workflow Script Type with Name 'VBScript' was not found in the configuration file.

I note from other questions and general documentation that I should not require the Legacy Pack sa I'm only using workflow bundles. Further to this I don't require it in another environment.

I've since replicated the schema and then also the contents (linking the same components etc.) but not managed to replicate this - I've removed my event code etc. but am still seeing the error on saving component(s) based on the original schema. Any ideas of where to investigate next?


I was able to replicate the issue when I check (as we want longer-term)

Any changes made to a Component based on this Schema require approval by a Bundle Workflow Process

  • The Associated Component Process is (None) in both cases and
  • Preferred Workflow Process for this Bundle in Component Process.

This does seem ironic given we only want to use Bundle Workflow and now we want to enforce it we're triggering a need for the Legacy Pack?

    Which activities do you have on a Process Definition associated with schema? From the error it says that one of the Automatic Activity definitions has VBscript workflow script type. Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 14:13
  • The Legacy pack is not need for bundle workflow. It is needed by process definition associated to your Preferred Workflow Process Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 14:33
  • Hey Stan - it was essentially the Preferred Workflow Process setting to a legacy item - which was acnkoneldged/tested when the schema setting to force bundle workflow is set! If you promote your comment to an answer I'm happy to mark it up :) Thanks! Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 14:34

From the error it says that one of the Automatic Activity definitions has VBscript workflow script type.

Please check Activity Definitions on Preferred Workflow Process process definition.
