If you get an error uninstalling ICT (after trying through Add Or Remove Programs), please try the following:

  • Try to uninstall using the installer of the version that you currently have installed
  • Verify that you have the Information Centric Tagging folder in place (C:\Program Files\Symantec Corporation)
  • Verify that there are no missing files in the installation folder (e.g.: cssecure-client-service.exe)
  • Generate an Uninstall log and send it to Symantec support team (one of the following):
    • msiexec /x {Product MSI file} /l*v log-uninstall-ict.log
    • msiexec.exe /x {PRODUCTID.EN_US} /l*v log-uninstall-ict.log

The Product ID can be retrieved from (PowerShell): get-wmiobject -Query "select * from win32_Product where name='RightsWATCH'" | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber
