TOPICHow to redeploy Nintex Workflow 2013 Solutions with clearing the GAC files.
- In Central Administration, retract all Nintex Workflow solutions in the following order, waiting for each one to retract before moving to the next:
- nintexworkflow2013enterprisefeatures.wsp (First retract from all web apps, then from Central Admin)
- nintexworfklow2013.wsp (First retract from all web apps, then from Central Admin)
- Remove all retracted Nintex Workflow Solutions.
- Delete all Nintex Workflow assemblies from GAC_MSIL: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL
- Run the installer with the correct User account as Administrator. Refer to page 9 of Installing Nintex Workflow 2013 and Nintex Forms 2013 to ensure the correct permissions are deployed.
- Go to Central Administration > System Settings > Manage Farm Solutions and verify that the following solutions have been deployed:
- nintexworkflow2013core.wsp (deploy globally)
- nintexworfklow2013.wsp (deploy to Central Admin, then to the rest of the web apps)
- nintexworkflow2013enterprisefeatures.wsp (deploy to Central Admin then, if using enterprise edition of Nintex Workflow, to the rest of the web apps)
- nintexworkflow2013enterprisefeaturesbackwardscompat.wsp (deploy to any sites running in 2010 mode, otherwise skip)
- nintexworkflow2013backwardscompatibilityui.wsp (deploy to any sites running in 2010 mode, otherwise skip)
- If the release notes indicate that a database update is required, then do the following:
- In SharePoint Central Administration, in the Quick Launch menu, click Nintex Workflow Management.
- Click Database Setup.
- If a database update is available, it will be indicated in green with an option to “Update now”.
- Click Update now.
- Reset IIS (Start > Run > IISreset) on all SharePoint farm servers, and then restart the SharePoint 2013 Timer:
- Open the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in.
- Right-click the service and select Restart.
- Test activating Nintex Workflow on New Site Collection, and workflows in general.
