On a Windows 2008 Server, I have Microsoft Office 2003 Standard installed. Also installed is Access 2003 Runtime.
I'm upgrading to Office 2010 Standard, and planning to install Access 2010 Runtime.
My first step is to remove Access 2003 Runtime. I've tried this several ways, and it keeps failing:
1) Via Control Panel, Programs and Features, Uninstall
2) Select Control Panel, Programs and Features, Change, then selecting Uninstall from the Access Setup options.
3) Selecting the Access 2003 Runtime MSI, then selecting Uninstall from the Access Setup options.
4) Installing MS Fixit and letting that uninstall it.
The usual fail message is "Error 1316: The specified account already exists"
Note that I've tried this on different clones of the original server.
Is there some better way of removing it? Could there be possibly some security or Group Policy setting that stops removal of programs. The servers I'm looking at are all terminal servers, so I wonder would there be any setting there that could interfere.
