I have to reinstall my SharePoint 2016 OnPremise Farm and with it the Workflow Manager.

Need to know how to do, since some components have been removed from the WebPlatformInstaller. When trying to download them offline using the following commands I get 404 error:

Webpicmd /offline /Products:ServiceBus /Path:E:\ServiceBus
Webpicmd /offline /Products:WorkflowClient /Path:E:\WorkflowClient
Webpicmd /offline /Products:WorkflowManagerRefresh /Path:E:\WorkflowManagerRefresh
  • Download of product 'WindowsImagingComponent failed. Failed to download file: 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/4/5/645FED5F-A6E7-44D9-9D10-FE83348796B0/wic_x64_enu.exe'.
  • Download of product 'WorkflowClient failed. Failed to download file: 'http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=717130&clcid=0x409'.

Did not find any info on the web, except that the components have been removed by Microsoft.

I found this, but it does not help, because neither the official documentation says how to install it.

EDIT 26.08.2020
Today the WindowsImagingComponent works, but 'WindowsFabric_1_0_960_0 rises a 404:

  • Download of product 'WindowsFabric_1_0_960_0 failed. Failed to download file: 'http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=264989&clcid=0x409'.
    Skipping download of product 'ServiceBus': required dependency 'WindowsFabric_1_0_960_0' failed.

    I could reproduce this issue per my test.

    We will give you an update as soon as possible if there is any fix on it.

    I would like to confirm that I can install WorkflowManagerRefresh and its components from the Web Platform Installer without any issue.
