The error here is quite clear something you are referencing is not set.

This could be one of the following:

  1. an argument in or out of a workflow
  2. a variable within a workflow
  3. a value you are passing to a method
  4. a property you are passing to an activity.

You would need to provide more information about the variables/activities you are working with.



Hello, were you able to resolve this issue, I am also facing the same error.

Hi, turns out there was a missing argument in one of the activities I used. I cannot edit the workflow so I just redo the whole thing.

This happens when you incorrectly create a variable as argument with out or In/Out property and do not pass its value into or out to any other xaml. Either choose a correct property or create a variable instead of argument
