Stop removal of MSI package
Posted on 2007-08-02
We have rolled out an application using MSI packages with enforced scoping. However, once you take a PC out of the scope of the GPO the removal process does not complete and hangs the computer. Is there a way of manually removing a GPO enforcement off a PC or removing it from Active directory?
The MSI package was of an old application and was modified via transforms to get working. I know why the MSI is failing when requesting the application to be removed, but I can't fix the current version as it stands. I have manually removed the application from a test machine and it still wants to try to run the removal process on computer startup.
I can remove the GPO from the different areas, but that will just trigger the removal, same with deleting the GPO. I edited the GPO to uncheck the enforcement, but it's not sticking.
