How to unconfigure, uninstall, install, and reconfigure Workflow Manager Refresh version

Unconfigure Workflow Manager Refresh version
To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In the Configuration Wizard, click Leave farm.

    Note If there's more than one server in the Run the configuration wizard dialog box, click Leave farm on all the servers.
  2. Delete all the Workflow Manager and Service Bus-related databases. For example, delete all the following databases:
    • WFInstanceManagementDB
    • WFManagementDB
    • WFResourceManagementDB
    • SbGatewayDatabase
    • SbManagementDB
    • SBMessageContainer01
  3. Delete the following registry keys. This step lets you completely uninstall from Control Panel: 
    LocationValue
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Workflow Manager\1.0HostConfigurationState
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Service Bus\1.0HostConfigurationState

    Note This action makes .msi programs recognize the computer as not joined to any farm. After that, you can uninstall Workflow Manager from Control Panel. 
Uninstall Workflow Manager Refresh version
To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Programs and Features.
  2. View the installed updates, and uninstall any cumulative updates (CUs) that are installed for Workflow Manager before you uninstall Workflow Manager.
  3. Uninstall the following software by using the Uninstall or change a program option:
    • Workflow Manager
    • Workflow Manager Client

Install Workflow Manager Refresh version
To do this, start the Web Platform installer, and then select Workflow Manager 1.0 Refresh (CU2).

If you want to install Workflow Manager CU3, you can install Workflow Manager 1.0 Cumulative Update 3 after you install the Refresh version. (You don't have to install any Service Bus or WFM client update after you install the WFM Refresh version.)

  1. Configure the Workflow Manager farm.
  2. On the SharePoint server where you want to register your SharePoint site, install Workflow Manager Client 1.0 Cumulative Update 3.

    Note This version of the client is backward-compatible to earlier versions of Workflow Manager.
  3. Configure the Workflow Manager farm, and then add the servers to the farm.
