  • Uninstall file in-use by uninstall.exe

    I am getting the message, "File in-use, click 'Abort', 'Retry', 'Ignore' when running the uninstall for one of my applications. When I run Process Explorer and search for the indicated file that is in-use, Process Explorer lists uninstall.exe as the application.

    During this process, the file gets unregistered, and fails the delete. I have attached the install and uninstall log files ... Any suggestions?

    I suggest that you make sure that NO antivirus software is running in the background. They are known to lock files, mentioned (and confirmed) in multiple threads in this forum.

      The application that is being uninstalled is installed on a virtual server, no anti-virus software installed, just our application. I use this server for testing only.

      I have not run our application, as I am testing install and uninstall process.

      Attached is screen shot of the uninstaller and Process Explorer.
