  • Unknown

Resolution

Delete this folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{4337A496-6773-4624-985F-E203E1D08CC9}

Additional Information

Uninstaller location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{4337A496-6773-4624-985F-E203E1D08CC9}

This path and folder seem to be the same for all Windows robot installs.

Comparing the files there at the OC robot they match up to another robot instance where the uninstall works.
