GP 2015 Web Client Uninstall – Issue & Resolution


In my earlier post, I discussed about an issue that I came across while installing web client. This one’s while uninstalling the web client.

My VM is added to my work domain and when I installed web client, my VM was connected to my work network. Back at home, in my holidays, I was experimenting with various stuff. Got my VM web client corrupted and decided to uninstall it.

Running the web client uninstall started off properly but threw the following error soon after:

You may see the point in time at which the uninstall process stopped: ConfigureUsers.

Tried various things, as usual, but could not fix it. Every time I tried to uninstall, it stopped exactly at ConfigureUsers.

My instinct was telling me that it was something to do with domain network issue. As I was trying this at home, it could probably be something related to that.

I connected to my work VPN and then restarted the uninstall process. This time around, the process went on smoothly and completed.

Remember. If your machine (or a VM) is affiliated to your work domain when you installed the web client, make sure that your machine (or a VM) is connected to your work domain when you try to uninstall.

This makes a world of difference. You do know what that difference is, by now.
