worflow Manager cannot start

Hi i can a few errors when doing certain things. the CRM opens thru
http://<servername>:5555, but

When I try to open worflow manager I get this error

worflow Manager cannot start. This could be because the workflow
configuration is corrupted or microsoft crm workflow service cannot access
the configuration file

Also , I think this is related to these errors when I open Deplayment
Manager I get this.

the selected server is not respondign. this might happen if it is currently
unavailablr, it does not exist, there is a logon failure or microsoft sql
server services mssql$crm is not running

How can I fix this? or is better to uninstall and reinstall CRM

I appreciate everyone's time and i thank you and advanced for any help

Which version of the .NET Framework are you using? You need to make sure
that the MSCRM website is configured to use .NET 1.1 and not 2.0. If you
change the ASP.NET version used, please remember to do an iisreset.

Thanks for your promt reply,

Niths, Yes is using 1.1 (1.1.4322) I do access the website for crm, but the
problem or issues are with the deplayment Manager and the workflow manager
the rest works fine
