Failed on Start - MOSS workflow

If the error "Failed on Start" occur while trying to start the workflow look into the LOGS files found at %Program Files%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\LOGS. The information provided is excellent - you'll get a detailled explanation of the issue.

That is about the most useless post I've ever seen. Thanks.

Obviously you haven't struggled hours trying to figure out the detailled information messages from SharePoint.

Despite the file is quite huge try to open it in Notepad and search for SPWorkflow - or even better your DLL name. It will most likely tell you what whent wrong.

Did you check the log files? Anyone with good examples of information in the logfiles.

I agree the logfiles can be HUGE - so maybe some examples would help out.
