Posted on 2011-02-14

I have a package called Playon. I was running it on my 2008 server, but needed to uninstall it to. When I go to reinstalling I get the message in the screen shot. So far the company who makes it is sure what this is. I've used a registry cleaner and remove any of their entries, but still have the problem.

would any know where this message is pointing to? error

I think that this message may be triggered when you try to run the uninstall from a different account than the one the product was originally installed from.

When you went to uninstall, did you right click and select "run as admin"

I ran the uninstaller from 'programs and features" But not sure if I was using the same account I installed it with.
