I'm trying to install Sonic Wall Global VPN Client version 4.0 and I keep getting this error message:

"It appears that you've uninstalled the SonicWall Global VPN client.  You need to reboot your computer before Setup can proceed."

I've rebooted the system as it said to do and still get the same error.  Any suggestions?

Here's what I did on vista...


find the Sonicwall uninstall utility.  download and extract it.  then right click on the extracted file and run as administrator.  Simply running it in vista doesn't appear to work.
