Workflow uninstall checklist

  • After uninstallation of Winshuttle Workflow server reset "AllowAnonymousImpersonation" key as it was set in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\2000\web.config file.
  • Remove the Workflow Admin user permission from Server Machine, Sharepoint Root Site Collection and Database Server given during installation
  • Reset DisableloopBackCheck and DisableStrictNameChecking registry entries, if these were set during installation.
  • Uninstall Server must successfully remove the Workflow Server files from Program Files
  • Delete the Winshuttle Workflow Admin Site and free up the port assigned to it.
  • Remove any Formex templates from custom site templates for use
  • Remove Sharevis files/entries from the virtual directory folder: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\90(WebApp port)
  • Make sure the wpcatalog Folder should not have any workflow related files. It should not delete any other product files from this folder.
  • Make sure the App_GlobalResources does not have localized folders like DE FR etc.
  • Remove the Structuremap.config file.
  • Make sure users can still access the Web App and other sites hosted on the webapp after workflow is uninstalled.
  • Remove the following Registry Entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->Sharevis
  • Verify that the Web.config file (for all the webapps on all the frontends) does not have any Workflow-related entries.

Note: Uninstalling Winshuttle Workflow does not delete the Winshuttle Workflow database. Opening the existing Workflow site will generate a "Page not found" error.
