Applies to the following products:
For Nintex for SharePoint 2016, see: https://community.nintex.com/docs/DOC-5981-nintex-workflow-2016-product-update-process
To check if you have a valid Software Assurance contract in place, navigate to SharePoint Central Administration, open the Nintex Workflow Management section, and click on Licensing. If the Software Assurance or Premium Support expiry date is in the future, you'll be able to access the product update.
When you perform an upgrade, changes are normally made to the database schema. Unfortunately those changes mean there is no easy rollback method that we can recommend or support.
*Extra note for Nintex Forms
Ensure the user account that is performing the Installation/Deployment (Windows user as well user logged into Central Administration) is the Farm Installation account and that it is a Local Administrator on the Server you are installing on. For information on how to set the farm install account, see Troubleshooting Nintex Deployments

When you install Nintex products, it will cause an IIS reset. We recommend you install Nintex products outside regular office hours.
If you were running Nintex Live previously, ensure the Nintex Live checkbox in the installer is checked to ensure Nintex Live is also updated.
Ensure you perform the database update step if applicable. If a product update requires a database update, this will be specified in the Release Notes.

Do you need the English version or the International version? International versions are not always the same build release as the English version. You can check this by going to the licensing page Nintex Licensing Information.

Note for Nintex Workflow 2010: You will need to uninstall the current build from the SharePoint Control Panel, and re-install the new build.

Hey Gottfried, you can access the license info from SharePoint Central Admin, or from within the Nintex Workflow designer. See Nintex Licensing InformationYou'll see the version type and number next to the Version field.
We are in a multi-farm Environment with Production, QA, and Dev Farms. I was wondering if there were any advice or guidance on how to coordinate the update process. My knee-jerk reaction is to build upwards, Dev then QA then Production. But after a some though I realized that the ContentDBs actually only move from Production down.
Is there anything?
