You have a "BaseProject". "FirstProject" is created extending from "BaseProject". This "FirstProject" has a project variable of type String and a simple process with a Global Creation -> Begin -> Interactive -> End. When you publish and deploy and try to access and create an instance in the process, you get an exception.

This happens in all Engine runtime: Studio and on Enterprise for WLS and WAS. The problem does not happen at publication time but at runtime.

It happens with any project variable type. So the type is not a variable in this issue. The project is generated with project dependencies.
