I am using MAE 16.5, and I built a workflow desktop application but whenever I try to open a workflow form or list, it gives me the following error message
The field 'geom' has type 'public.geometry', which is currently unknown to Npgsql. You can retrieve it as a string by marking it as unknown, please see the FAQ.
Note: I originally built the workflow on MAE 16.1.4 then migrated it into 16.5.
I am using database postgres 9.6 with postgis 2.5.0.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I cannot replicate your issue. I've loaded your table and your workflow (removing only references to additional tables) and I can successfully capture data and load lists and forms.
Is there anything else in your workflow definition that can cause problems?

Now I get in the error log another error as follows:
c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\workflows\d4a0faa0\5c7ee588\App_Web_listheadertemplate.cshtml.5e279d63.zdb5velh.0.cs(65): error CS0103: The name 'nameof' does not exist in the current context
Although I did not change anything.
I also tried another sample shapefile from https://www.mapbox.com/help/data/stations.zip but the same error of the NPGSQL, I investigated the error and it appears that the npgsql.dll 188.8.131.52 which is used in MAE 16.5 does no longer support the types of POSTGIS itself, but there a specialized spatial library 'NetTopologySuite' should be used as stated in https://www.npgsql.org/doc/types/nts.html. I hope this note would help.

I'm not quite sure I've got your point. The way it is implemented keeps compatibility with the past, so you don't have to take care of any change.
As I said we are not able to replicate this issue, we have tested several environments including a Postgres 9.6 server with PostGIS 2.5.
I guess there is something wrong on your server installation.
