How to uninstall "Event Log Watch" service


Article ID: 16819


Updated On:


CA Privileged Identity Management Endpoint (PIM)


If we tried to upgrade from PIM Endpoint to PAMSC14.0, "Event Log Watch" service exists yet.

Correct design?


WindowsPIM EndpointPAMSC14.0


Yes, it is correct design.

If we try to install PAMSC14.0 as fresh installation, the service is not installed.

However, if we try to upgrade from PIM Endpoint to PAMSC14.0, the service is not removed.

If you would like to remove the service,


1: Please uncompress in C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\SharedComponents\CA_LIC folder.

2: Please run "rmlicense.bat".


*Pay attention:

PIM and PAMSC don't use "Event Log Watch(License)" service.

So you can remove the service.

However, if you have already installed other CA products, please contact the CA products support team before 

removing the service.
