    Hi Ron,
    great series on WF - have enjoyed them a lot.
    Is it possible to auto start a workflow just via web.config configuration?
            <hosting>            <serviceAutoStart>                <add relativeVirtualPath="Service1.xamlx" />            </serviceAutoStart>        </hosting>    </microsoft.applicationServer>
    rather than having to make an internal call within Global.asax to call back into the service to kick start it?
    I found a thread here:
    that almost answers the question - but still no definitive answer.
    My scenario is that I want to replace a Windows Service that pops items off a Queue for processing and what I'd ideally like is a WF4 activity hosted with AppFabric that is auto started enabled - but I just can't seem to find a way for it to automatically invoke the workflow...
    Many thanks,
