Anybody knows how to get the standalone windows workflow manager 1.0 and other related packages? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to install workflow service for sharepoint 2013. All documents say I need to install workflow with web PI program.

    But the problem is my sharepoint server can't access the internet. I tried running the web PI program on a Win7 PC in order to get the cached package, but it can't find the needed packages.

    Could I get the packages by this way? If so, do I have to run web PI program on Win Server 2008?  If not, could I download these packages directly somewhere?

    thanks.

    I've just found the following download on www.microsoft.com/download

    It seems that the only way to perform an offline installation of Workflow Manager (or Workflow Manager Client) is through the WebPICmd tool. It is a command-line interface for Web Platform Installer. To get it you need to download and install Web PI:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/0/4/704CEB4C-9F42-4962-A2B0-5C84B0682C7A/WebPlatformInstaller_amd64_en-US.msi

    or

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/0/4/704CEB4C-9F42-4962-A2B0-5C84B0682C7A/WebPlatformInstaller_x86_en-US.msi

    WebPICmd.exe is included with this package.

    Then you create an offline copy of the required packages:

    WebpiCmd.exe /offline /products:Workflow,WorkflowClient /Path:<path-to-dir>\OfflineCache

    Copy “OfflineCache” folder to your server and run either

    WebpiCmd.exe /install /products:Workflow /xml:file:///<path-to-dir>/OfflineCache/feeds/latest/webproductlist.xml

    or                           

    WebpiCmd.exe /install /products:WorkflowClient /xml:file:///<path-to-dir>/OfflineCache/feeds/latest/webproductlist.xml

    depending on which package you want to install.

    WebPICmd.exe is located in “OfflineCache\bin” folder but watch out for x64/x86 versions (if your internet-connected PC is x86 WebPICmd.exe in “bin” folder is also x86).

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks very for your help.

    But there is a problem when creating the offline copy. The error log is something like

    processing item:“WindowsFabricV1RTM_1_0_944_0”.
    InternetOpenUrl return 0x80072EE7: Unknown error 12007.
    can't reslove the remote address: 'iis-webstack'
    failed to download file:“http://iis-webstack/test/windowsazureinstaller/beta/windowsazure.
    jpg”.
    downloading “WindowsFabricV1RTM_1_0_944_0” failed. Can't download file:“http://iis-webstack
    /test/windowsazureinstaller/beta/windowsazure.jpg”.
    Processing item:“WindowsManagementFramework”.
    InternetOpenUrl return 0x80072EE7: Unknown error 12007.
    can't reslove the remote address: 'iis-webstack'

    downloading “WindowsManagementFramework” failed. Can't download file:“http://iis-webstack/t
    est/windowsazureinstaller/beta/windowsazure.jpg”.

    What should I do now?

  • Finaly I solve the problem.

    I think the problem is the error in feeds from MS. So I downloaded the packages and modified the local feed manualy. Although there were still problems, such as webpi couldn't download installer from local folders, finally I solved it by put it on my web site.

  • I've just found the following download on www.microsoft.com/download

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35375

    which seems to let you download Workflow Manager, Client, Best Practice Analyser and the tools for Visual Studio 2012 all on one page.

    I think however it still probably uses the Web Platform Installer and requires internet access.

  • You can download an offline copy of the installers required to setup Workflow Manager by following the below steps.

    1. Download WebPICMD.exe (http://www.iis.net/learn/install/web-platform-installer/web-platform-installer-v4-command-line-webpicmdexe-preview-release_1072) on a machine with internet access.

    2. Extract the files, you will need the WebPiCmd.exe to install Workflow Manager

    3. Type this command:
       webpicmd /offline /Products:WorkflowManager /Path:c:\offlineWorkFlow

    4. In my example it creates a directory called offlineWorkflow and downloads all the required installers there. Copy this to the machine(s) you want to install Workflow Manager.

    5. On the target machine you'll need to type this command to begin installation:
       WebpiCmd.exe /Install /Products:WorkflowManager /XML:c:/offlineWorkFlow/feeds/shadow-webproductlist.xml

  • Hi,

    We have added these steps to the documentation here as well:

  • Someone else on this thread mentioned it, but I want to point out that this command in the referenced documentation does not work as written:

    WebpiCmd.exe /Install /Products:WorkflowManager /XML:c:/WorkflowManagerFiles/feeds/shadow-webproductlist.xml

    I was able to change it to this and it worked for me:

    WebpiCmd.exe /Install /Products:WorkflowManager /XML:c:/WorkflowManagerFiles/feeds/latest/webproductlist.xml

  • Do you think its important to run the download process with the same os version and language then the os on which the install will be made ?

    Thanks a lot in advance
