Our product installs Matlab Component Runtime during it's installation. Problem is that I am not able uninstall this Matlab Component Runtime.

I get following error while uninstallaiton:-
"Could not delete the MCR files"

I see this problem on Vista and Win 2008. It uninstalls correctly on Win XP.

Please find the log file attached created during uninstallation process.

Is it possible that older version of MCR was already installed on that machine before you installed another version? I heard there are problems of uninstalling MCR in this case.

Also check if this bug report relates to your issue:

Well Not really.

We have had this 7.3 version of MCR since beginning. So there is no chance of having the older version ......

We found that the MCR7.3 is not supported officially for Vista OS and hence , the problems we faced above are not tried out. The solution for this is to make MCR in the matlab compiler version that has windows Vista support and use the same. Doing this we resolved the uninstall issue.
