can you give full details of the 1720 error please i.e. the text before and after 1720  or how it appears.

Also try stopping the srevice (if it is running) to fing it

Go> start menu> Run> and type 'services.msc'
In the window try to locate the service for the application, highlight , right click and select stop.
When the service is stopped, try to uninstall again

This assumes the thing runs as a service
