  • Hi,

    I had the exact same problem in the exact same circumstances. This is what I did:

    - Uninstalled updates to the Workflow Manager

    - Restarted the server

    - Run the configuration wizzard as Administrator

    - Went with the standard Settings

    And it worked. I think removing the updates was the key here but I can't tell for sure.

    PS. You shouldn't use an admin account for the serivce.

  • Did you install Service Bus CU1? WF Manager CU1 takes dependence on SB CU1.

    Some issue during install may have missed SB CU1 install

    You can install SB CU1 from here

    Worth a try

  • Sometime , it is because : the wrong sequence of WF manager installation and it's update installation. so ,try to reinstall the update of WF manager, it may be resolved.

  • How do I uninstall the cumulative updates from Workflow manager?
    Wednesday, October 23, 2013 10:53 AM
    1. Go to Control Panel / Programs / Programs and Features / Installed Updates.  
    2. Uninstall both "Cumulative Update for Workflow Manager 1.0" and "Cumulative Update for Service Bus 1.0".
    3. Open Web Platform Installer and install "Cumulative Update for Service Bus 1.0".
    4. Once the SB CU1 is installed, install "Cumulative Update for Workflow Manager 1.0".  It may error out saying SB CU1 is not yet installed, simply try again.

    These steps worked in my lab environment.

  • Had this issue myself. Thanks for this.

    What a complete mess. Microsoft just don't seem to be able to manage updates for their products. What's the point of their web platform installer if it can't manage the order of installation correctly?

  • Too many updates ruined it for me, after removing all workflow app through programs and features, i followed Harbars way:

  • This process worked for me. Error saying SB CU1 is not yet installed appeared and required a restart of the Web Platform Installer. After that, it ran through to completion. Thanks!
