I need to add Nintex live to existing nintex 2016 installation.


So I'd like to change the min role of my WFE from custom to WFE and Distributed Cache. WHen I try to do that I get an error, and when I check the ULS logs, I get


Failed converting server 'WFE' from 'WebFrontEndWithDistributedCache' to 'WebFrontEndWithDistributedCache' role. Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Could not start the Nintex Live Workflow Queue Service, please ensure the service is installed locally. Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

I think I had nintex live turned on in my 2010 farm and there are some artifacts lingering around. So I have a production enviroment up and running and now I want to try adding Nintex Live so I can change the server role. It looks like I need to install  nintexlivecore.wsp, but I can't find it in my install files. 


Any advice on how to remove the Nintex live artifacts, or add / install Nintex Live to an existing production farm?
