  • 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
    Description:
    Error loading and running event receiver Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver in Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c. Additional information is below.

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

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    I found a MS recommended solution to the problem at http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/WSS/en/library/38857f26-6279-4019-b4d2-5d18a7a02ca51033.mspx but I still can't place my finger on what exactly caused the error at the first place and how to reproduce it (so I'd know what to avoid going forward).

    Did the MSDN articles suggestion of repairing the sharepoint installation work?

    I had the same error popping up in the event viewer each time a user opened a webpart. But everything seemed to work fine. So I decided to use this workaround: http://www.dailycode.net/blog/post/Error-in-SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver.aspx
