Offline Installation Instructions for Workflow Manager 1.0
Updated: January 2, 2013
Workflow Manager 1.0 is installed using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer 4.0. If the target machine does not have internet access (for example for security reasons), then the online Web PI installation of Workflow Manager cannot be used, and the components must be installed offline. This topic describes how to download the required components and perform an offline installation of Workflow Manager 1.0.
On a machine with internet access, download the Web Platform Installer v4 command line (WebPICMD.exe) Preview Release and expand the files to a new folder.
If you have WebPI v3 or v4 installed, do not extract these files to the existing WebPI directories. Please extract the files to a new directory.
Open an elevated command line prompt and navigate to the folder where WebPICMD.exe was extracted in the previous step and enter the following command.
Pathcommand line parameter specifies the location of the downloaded files. If the specified folder does not already exist it is created. In this example the
C:\WorkflowManagerFilespath is used.
The steps in this procedure may be skipped if the steps in To download the files were performed on the target machine. If the files were downloaded on a different machine, then the steps in this procedure must be followed to copy the files along with WebPICmd.exe to the target machine.
Copy the folder and all subfolders and files from step 2 of To download the files to a folder on the target machine.
It is not necessary to copy WebPICmd.exe to the target machine as it is included as part of the files downloaded in step 2 of To download the files.
On the target machine, open an elevated command line prompt and navigate to the
c:\WorkflowManagerFiles\binfolder. (If you used a different folder, replace C:\WorkflowManagerFiles with the name of the folder that you used.)
Run the following command.
WebpiCmd.exe /Install /Products:WorkflowManager /XML:c:/WorkflowManagerFiles/feeds/shadow-webproductlist.xml
The XML command line parameter specifies the location of the downloaded files. Replace the first part of the path (in this example it is
C:\WorkflowManagerFiles) with the folder name on your target machine.
Once the installation completes, Workflow Manager 1.0 can be configured by following the steps at Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0 using Configuration Wizard or Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0 using PowerShell.
