Ansys 19.2 EM Uninstaller Wont Run

Trying to run the uninstaller (have tried via script and manually) and get a message that it detects that the uninstaller is already running. I have restarted with the same result and also tried several computers.

Anyone else run into this?

    @rmadams How did you try to uninstall? Did you use Windows -> Programs and Features, or did you try running the files from C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\Uninstall ?

  • I am running from C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\Uninstall. The goal is to send a script to uninstall remotely, but I have tried running the uninstaller manually from this folder as well.

    Can you try:

    "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\AnsysEM19.2\Win64\Uninstall\setup.exe" /runfromtemp /z suppressconfirmation /removeonly

  • Hi,

    That is what we are using - we have tried with and without the /runfromtemp.  Still getting the message that it detects that the uninstaller is already running.  This happens after rebooting as well (and we just run the uninstaller by hand).

    If you look in Windows task manager -> Details tab. Do you see a "setup.exe" process running?

    In Windows Add/Remove Programs, is "ANSYS Electronics Suite 19.2" listed?

    Please confirm, the exact message being displayed.
