This SharePoint workflow tutorial explains how to solve error: Register-SPWorkflowService: Workflow XAML failed validation due to the
Invalid typ (s) ‘Microsoft.Activities.CacheScope’.
HTTP headers received from the server – ActivityId.
The error comes while Registering SPWorkflowService while configuring Workflow manager 1.0 for SharePoint 2016. After configuring workflow manager 1.0, while running the PowerShell command to register workflow service, I got the below error.
Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite “http://mypc/sites/MySP2016SiteCollection/” -WorkflowHostUri “http://localhost:12291” -AllowOAuthHttp -Force
After running the above PowerShell command, the error comes as:
