    Can you share the screen shot of the error. In addition, can you check the Logs and look for the additional error. Also, are you doing this on your local machine or on the CMS server itself? Jan 29, 2014 at 7:26

  • See comments from Puntero, that is one of the possible reason. In addition check the Windows Event Logs on CMS server for SDL Tridion Content Manager and see if there is any error with more description that helps you identify the issue. Jan 29, 2014 at 12:54

Check your connection between activities on the diagram

That error indicates that you have 2 activities not properly connected. If you click on an activity and it doesn't show red dots on the connections, it means its not properly connected.

Update: A space at the end of the definition name would generate the same error
