HI All,

I am having an issue with uninstalling an application which throws up "error 1605 This action is only valid for products that are currently installed." I would normally suggest that the application was not present and had been removed before, was not installed in the first place or conflicting product code etc. Unfortunately not the case here :( I have investigated this and the log file is as below from USD (CA):

The code given ({3a075ed7-81a7-45d5-b08b-602f60dec2ef}) is actually a component code from the application. The component seems to be empty, no files/reg/shortcuts etc The application will uninstall from the command line without issue and has been tested on multiple machines. The error only occurs when we try to remove it from USD using the CA deployment tool. This is a vendor MSI. Any ideas? Cheers in advance[:)]

Hi

i have faced some issue while uninstalling the application, unicenter. So what i did was, created a wrapper msi for the same and towards the end of the installation of the application, i will trigger the installation of the setup using a VB script.

But while uninstalling the application, user interaction is a must and for that i created an application, using VB and Windows APIs. This exe was called in the unisntallation sequence of the wrapper msi, and will trigger the uninstallation of the unicenter application. For all the dialogs which are coming up, i have used windows API calls for sending the required inputs to the dialogs, and accomplished the task of unistalliing the same.

Thanks and Regards
