forms activation correlation error

Question asked by jonathanbordoli on Mar 20, 2018

I installed Nintex forms on SP2013 - small farm 1xapp, 1xweb server.

Installation proceeded with no errors.

Trying to activate the forms feature from CA > Application management > Manage web applications 

Choose a web app then from the toolbar > manage features > Nintex forms activate


Throws correlation error>

Here is the strange thing. That file is in the 15 hive.


Even stranger re-running the Nintex forms installer now throws an error

Clearly the installer now has a problem but was looking for it in the 15 hive.
I will log with Nintex support.
