Guys,

Does anyone of you experienced the below issue?
During Uninstallation a file called LogFile00.dat is not getting removed since it is held by ScreenAgent.exe running in the background. When i remove it manually i can unisntall the application. I have removed this file from the package. Its getting created in runtime and troubling uninstallation.

Basically there are 2 kernel servcies getting installed under sysInfo(Service type=1)
and starting ScreenAgent.exe in the background.
I am not controlling the installation of servcies through table as it needs to be installed through registries i have just kept it as per the capture. It reboots the machine to start the service.

I have read from the other threads that taskkill work outside the MSI to kill the task running in the task manager but not through MSI. Is there anyone who solved this issue??

Presumably, you figured you'd get different responses in this forum to the ones I gave you here http://itninja.com/question/silent-uninstall-oracle-8-cilent337? On a scale of likelihood, 1 to 10, I'd guess that would be a zero.

I think it unlikely that you saw a thread here which posited that TaskKill wouldn't work inside an MSI. It will, but still NOT FOR KERNEL SERVICES.

I have already tried with vbscripts & now with PSKILL sysinternals tool.... still no luck :-( Hardly surprising because even posting your question in a different forum won't make it work.

As you already know (but are determined to ignore), you need to remove the files and registry entries then reboot. That is STILL the only way.

Dear VBScab,

This is a public forum. You can choose to ignore my messages. I can start as many threads as i feel releavnt and if the moderator has no issues, i do not see any reason why you should.

I feel so sorry to see the above old thread because i see no where have you tried to give me a solution. You are wasting your time as well....

I assume this forum is just for sharing knowledge amongst the members to not give any score..

Moderator please note that there are super members in this forum who are trying to scare away new members.
I highly appriciate if you help members with your replies!!

There are several different ways to make any issue to make it work & i have achieved. The above won't work because you have not understood my problem.

The whole point here i cannot uninstall unless i kill the screenagent.exe. Please understand the problem before giving the replies.
Hope this is clear!

I'm logged in to these fora all day and I recalled this post http://itninja.com/question/gnu,-freeware-and-shareware-programs-to-cloning2326

So any reasonable person would conclude that your package copies a bunch of files, adds a bunch of registry entries and reboots and that uninstallation involves the reversal of those changes. Your original post in the 'Windows Installer Errors' forum said that you were unable to remove the DAT file, owing to its being locked by ServiceAgent.EXE. You then went on to say that you had removed that file from your package, so it's hard for anyone to know why the uninstall was failing, since the file in question, no longer being part of the package, wouldn't need to be uninstalled.

The above thread was a first post and i was just concrened about the installation of a kernel service. I was convinced with the replies on how to go about the kernel service installation. I was no ware mentioned about my dat file in that thread.

This is a different thread started on with this issue. On top that i have mentioned i have removed the file but it was still getting created in the runtime and troubling the uninstallation.

since you are online all the day there is a little confusion for you to analyze the problem. I request you to please please don't link the problems.
That was a different thread and this is a different thread.
