    Unable to uninstall Client Integration Plug-in 6.0.0

    jcstein Novice

      Running Windows 7 SP 1, IE 11.\


      I am trying to clean up my plug-in installations to get around an error using Firefox and the Web Client for vSphere 6.5.  One of the recommendations I saw was to remove all old plugins..


      I had 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5. I was able to uninstall 5.0 and 6.0 but 6.5 is telling me that I need to close Internet Explorer to uninstall. It is not running, not showing running in task manager. Reboot Windows, run nothing else.. still says Internet Explorer is running.


      Is there a way for me to manually rip out the plugin since the uninstaller won't run?


      This is a legacy administration workstation that I keep around to run software that just won't run on WIndows 10 (the programmer for our ESI phone system is one such application).

      At this point its easier to just use another browser than completely re-install Windows on this computer to get around the issue.
