Looks like issue is definitely with ''OTAClient.Core.dll'' and not with the workflow script.
In ALM 12.21 patch 6 its size is 773 KB , where as in ALM 12.21 Patch 7 its size is 765 KB.
As part of my trouble shooting steps, I replaced the problematic Patch 7 ''OTAClient.Core.dll'' with Patch 6 ''OTAClient.Core.dll'' in ALM userprofile location i.e. ''C:Users<<>>AppDataLocalHPALM-Client<<>>
Post that, issue did not occur in Patch 7, test script creation is not leading to ''Specified Cast not valid'' error message. Having identified the root cause, could some one assist what needs to be done next , to arrive at a acceptable solution that can be deployed on to all user machines.
