Hi Aaron,

              I have downloaded the source code but there is not wsp file in it to install. Can you please guide me where to found the wsp to install.

Many Thanks

If you are wanting a WSP, do not use the source code. You would need to use one of the release files.

For anyone needing the source or release files, they are now located here: GitHub - modembug/NTX: NTX is a set of custom actions that extend functionality of Nintex Workflow. 

I have updated the post to reflect the new location as well.

I am using latest version of Nintex 2016 workflows. You have any idea if this is part of this release or when is Nintex going to release as part of the package?

Has anyone had success using the PowerShell action while using a Workflow Constant in the Computer Name field? When I try to set the Computer Name using either a Workflow Constant or a string variable I receive the error listed below. When I hard code the server name in the Computer Name field, the PowerShell runs fine.
