After running a Nintex Forms cmdlet, a "Feature definition id not found" error appears.




The following error message appears after running the Upgrade-NFService PowerShell cmdlet during or after installation or upgrade:


“Upgrade-NFService : Feature definition id ‘[ID]’ could not be found."




The server on which the Nintex Forms PowerShell cmdlet was run is not running the Web Application Service. For example, the cmdlet may have been run on the Central Administration server.




Run Nintex Forms PowerShell cmdlets on a server that is running the Web Application Service; that is, run the cmdlets on a web application server.
