We have installed Nintex Workflow 3.1.4.0 and Nintex Forms 2.6.0.0 on an fresh SharePoint 2013 farm.

 

When it comes to active the "Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow" we get the following error message (sorry for the German).

Der Inhaltstyp mit der ID '0x0108010079DBDE612F7B46928C6A2516BA2CAE3700D4A837248A47E040ABD1A569613E898B', der im Feature '{ac8addc7-7252-4136-8dcb-9887a277ae2c}' definiert ist, wurde in der aktuellen Websitesammlung oder in einer Unterwebsite gefunden.

 

But according to the ULS log, the xml definition cannot be located:

Unable to locate the xml-definition for CType with SPContentTypeId '0x0108010079DBDE612F7B46928C6A2516BA2CAE3700D4A837248A47E040ABD1A569613E898B', exception: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Catastrophic failure (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000FFFF (E_UNEXPECTED)) ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Catastrophic failure (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000FFFF (E_UNEXPECTED))
