Whats the procedure of installing the workflow manager 1.0 CU2 REFRESH version on my SP 2013 SP1 environment on my server thats having Win 2012 R2 OS.

I tried to run the s/ws that are pre-requisites for the wf manager cu2 refresh and kept it in my D:\ drive. whenever i tried to run those s/ws , it will directly connect to internet and download using the web platform installer 5.0 and download those pre-requisites.

Is there any step by step procedure using the powershell using the EXEs placed in the d drive and install WFManager CU2 REFRESH ?

my company doesnt allow me to download and install using the web PI.They wont allow direct online install of s/w to my desktops or servers.

For offline installation of workflow manager, you need a machine which is connected to internet.

  • first download the web platform installer on the machine which is connected to internet.
  • extract the files in a directory
  • then using the command line and download the workflow manager 1.0 cu2.
  • Now move the downloaded workflow manager files to server where u want to install wfm.
  • Now install it using the commandline.
