Cumulative Update 1 Released for Workflow Manager 1.0


I am pleased to announce the release of the first Cumulative Update (CU) for Workflow Manager 1.0; you can find the associated KB article here.  The Workflow Manager CU has a dependency on Service Bus CU1 (KB is here), which was also just released. 

There are a couple of options for the installation:

  • Direct installation from the Microsoft Download Center; the appropriate links are in the KB articles above
  • Via the Web Platform Installer:
    • Web PI link for Workflow Manager CU1
    • Web PI link for Service Bus CU1

 This CU aggregates a number of fixes, as discussed in the KB.  It also adds support for suspending and resuming workflow instances. 

 

Suspending & Resuming Workflow Instances

Workflows can be suspended via 3 mechanisms:

  •  Using the WorkflowManagementClient:

public WorkflowInstanceResult Suspend(string workflowName, string instanceName, string reason)

  • Via the Suspend activity, which you can use in your workflow definitions
  • Via an unhandled error: most unhandled errors – which would have previously terminated the instance – will now suspend the instance

 

Instances can be resumed via the WorkflowManagementClient:

        public WorkflowInstanceResult Resume(string workflowName, string instanceName)

    Hello,

    Sometime this week an issue developed with the web platform installer. When trying to apply the CU for service bus and workflow manager, WPI installs prerequsite files including the VisualC++ 2012 redistributable package. this always fails becuase the link to the C++2012 package is bad in the WPI. Multiple people have encountered this issue. you cannot work around it by manually installing the C++ 2012 package as the WPI does not detect that the package is already installed on the server.

    This worked fine lastweek when I installed the updates on a different SharePoint farm.

    Could someone please fix the broken link?

    Thanks
