Error while uninstalling application


When I am trying to uninstall an application using the msi through the command msiexec /x .... I am getting an error 1606 Could not access network location Documents And Settings\Allusers

Please let me know what changes do i need to make within the transform such that the application uninstalls successfully.

Copy and use the uninstall string from the registry and then try.

Are you uninstalling the program by removing computer from the group policy?

I tried the uninstall string. That also does not work.

Sounds like you have a redirection of a profile directory, which cannot be accessed by the local system account (used during deferred execution phase).
Did you install as per- user or machine?

If you're not installing any files to a profile path then just remove the Directory table entry (entries) for any of these.
What does a verbose log tell you during uninstall?
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
