• MOSS 2007 Event Receiver Error

    I ran into this error this morning while working on a SharePoint workflow project that worked pretty well just yesterday:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
    Event Category: General
    Event ID: 6875
    Date: 12/11/2007
    Time: 11:27:06 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: MOSS2007PRJ
    Error loading and running event receiver Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver in Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c. Additional information is below.

    : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
