    Solution
    Web.config entries need to be re-added, either through re-activation of the Nintex features or manually. You can re-perform the web application activation step in: 

    Central Administration > Nintex workflow management > Web application activation.

    Note: Make sure to tick "All Content Web Applications".

    If this doesn't work, you will need to add the below entries manually to the web.config file of each Web Front End server:

    <SafeControl Assembly="Nintex.Workflow.ServerControls, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=913f6bae0ca5ae12" Namespace="Nintex.Workflow.ServerControls" TypeName="*" Safe="True" /> <SafeControl Assembly="Nintex.Workflow.ServerControls, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=913f6bae0ca5ae12" Namespace="Nintex.Workflow.ServerControls.WebParts" TypeName="*" Safe="True" /
