To find the User Information List in the sharepoint, You need to enter the below URL
Then you can search either User ID or Email or FirstName or Last Name
I've ran into this scenario a lot it seems. I'm not sure if it's an issue with SharePoint Designer, or SharePoint itself, but the following seems to occur often:
I create a Workflow in SharePoint Designer, and when I save it, it's good to go, and works as expected. However, when opening it later for edits in SPD, I can make changes to the workflow, very large ones, and save it, and on the SharePoint site, it shows as a new version of this workflow, but never reflects the new changes I made to it.
For instance, I created a simple one to test, simply an email gets sent to me when a new item is created in a list. Works fine. However, when I add an item lookup in the body of the email, save the workflow again, and create a new item in my list, I still get a blank email, not the new item lookup in the body of the email as expected.
Is there some kind of timer with SharePoint updating workflows? Am I missing something here?
For SharePoint Designer, the solution is similar to Dave's solution.
It seems SharePoint Designer saves local copies of DLLs from your servers, and although everything seems OK, this prevents it from updating the workflow (this is when custom activities are involved, which the question didn't mention).
To solve this issue for MOSS 2007:
Go to the folder and delete the files and folders
C:\Users\LOginUse\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache
Sharepoint 2007 Timer Job
Create Timer job solution File.1.Create C# project Library
2.Create Timer.CS, TimerInstaller.CS, Feature.xml, manifest.xml files
3.Copy existing code and past it in the proper files
4.Set strong name
6.Copy DLL id in the feature file
7.Build WSP and following deploying procedures.
Deployment Timer Jobs:1. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES 1.1 Create a folder " KarNet.TimerJob " 1.2 Copy the files "Feature.xml" & "Manifest.xml"
2. Run the install.bat file to deploy the Solution file. 2.2 before that edit the file to point to correct SharePoint site, by changing the "TargetUrl".
2.3 stsadm -o installfeature -name KarNet.TimerJob -force
3. Copy the KarNet.TimerJob.DLL to GAC.
4. Activate the Site Collection feature to enable the custom Timer
5. Restart the Timer Service in services.
6. Create a Folder in C:\ as "KarNetLog"
7. Share the folder and allow "everyone" full access.
Activate Feature manually
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web serverextensions\12\BIN>stsa dm -o deactivatefeature -name KarNet.TimerJob -url "http://KarNet-46b4a490b"
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web serverextensions\12\BIN>stsa dm -o uninstallfeature -name "KarNet.TimerJob"
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web serverextensions\12\BIN>stsa dm -o installfeature -name KarNet.TimerJob -force
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web serverextensions\12\BIN>stsa dm -o activatefeature -name "KarNet.TimerJob" -url "http://KarNet-46b4a490b
