Having issues with Citrix on a Windows 7 Pro (64bit) machine.  Now I can't even uninstall the Citrix online plug-in, gets near the end of the uninstall and I get "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."
I was able to determine is it Citrix error 1603 'XenApp Web Plugin'

Sometimes the Windows installer service hangs or the app is not fully removed from the registry and can't be reinstalled, solved here:

Or even an older online plugin ?

Somehow Citrix Receiver (ica32t.exe), Citrix Online Plug-in (citrixonlinepluginfull.exe) and Citrix Online Plug-in Web (citrixonlinepluginweb.exe) are all installed, but for this application the only one that needs to be running is Citrix Online Plug-in.
I've tried citrixonlinepluginweb.exe \uninstall as per Citrix's edocs but it says there is another version of the Plug-in running (even though I'm trying to uninstall).
And the citrixonlinepluginfull.exe \uninstall seemed to work but didn't really remove it.
And I have no idea how to uninstall ica32t.exe since it is not in the Add/Remove Programs, nor is any of the Citrix programs.
Reminder, this is Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) and I've testing the application on another machine that is only running the Citrix Online Plug-in (exe) and it works fine, so the goal is to get all this Citrix software uninstalled and start from scratch.

Solved!  I found a Citrix Receive clean-up utility, and it cleaned up the fragments from the two versions of the online plugin, as well as the receiver.  I reinstalled the Online Plugin Web and everything works fine now.
