In the attached project I am property binding to the property TheForecast of type WeatherClient.WeatherService.ForeCast. This type is generated by the WCF proxy from the WeatherService in the solution.
The code runs just fine but the ReceiveActivity complains about the types not matching up and displays the following error message: Path resolved to Referenced activity Property “TheForecast” whose PropertyType ‘WeatherClient.WeatherService.ForeCast’ does not match with the Target Type ‘WeatherClient.WeatherService.ForeCast’.

Dear customer, we identified this issue as a problem in Windows Workflow Foundation 3.5. The two types that are being compared came from two different type systems, which results in the error at design time. This however does not affect the compilation of the workflow, so the error is more superficial than prohibiting and can be ignored in most scenarios.

If you need further assistance on this issue or if you’re blocked by this, please contact PSS and we will conduct a more formal investigation. The link for PSS is http://support.microsoft.com/gp/contactbug.

I was able to get around this issue by including the interface in the same project as the workflow (I had my interface in a separate project).
