Manual Installation of Nintex Workflow Solutions

How to manually install the Nintex Workflow solutions using PowerShell.
  1. Run the Nintex Workflow installation .exe on your Central Administration server. *This will be used to extract the solution files*
  2. Click through the installation wizard until reaching "Do you want to add the solutions to SharePoint now?"
  3. Select "No, I wish to export the solution and deploy it manually later."
  4. Click Export and select a destination folder for the solutions.
  5. Open a SharePoint Management Shell window as administrator.
  6. For each solution within extracted folder run the command: Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath drive:\path\solutionName.wsp
    • Example: Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath C:\Installers\NintexWorkflow2013.wsp
  7. Once all the solutions are imported into the SharePoint environment, deploy them in the following order:
    1. nintexcommon.wsp
    2. nintexworkflow2013core.wsp
    3. nintexworkflow2013.wsp
    4. nintexworkflow2013enterprisefeatures.wsp *This is only needed if you are using Enterprise licensing*
    5. nintexworkflow2013backwardscompatibilityui.wsp *This is only needed if you are using a site in 2010 compatibility mode*
