    Error 'The MSI " Failed." When trying to uninstall VMWare Workstation 7

    scottorourke Lurker








      I upgraded from Workstation 6.5 to7, not realising I would need a new license to use 7.  After running 7 and realising this, I tried to uninstall Workstation 7, but get the error 'The MSI " Failed.' almost immediately after clicking Continue on the "Ready to perform requested operations" dialog.



      I noticed the following errors in the log file:



      20091130161946:ERROR** CBootstrapCmd::RunOperation: Operation 'UninstallMSI' failed!

      Any ideas how I can get back to V6.5?



      I orginally installed V6, upgraded to V6.5 then 7.  This is all on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.



      Thanks for any help.
