Error: “DPM Setup was not able to uninstall the version of Watson that was installed with DPM”

DPM Setup installs version 2.0 of Watson during the installation of DPM. During uninstallation of DPM, Setup attempts to uninstall Watson 2.0. If the uninstallation on Watson 2.0 fails, Setup displays this error message. To solve the problem, you must uninstall Watson 2.0 manually by following these steps:

  1. Open a command prompt, and type the following:

    For X86-bit computers:

    • msiexec /x {91710409-8000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}

    For X64-bit computers:

    • msiexec /x {91730409-8000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}

  2. Press ENTER.

  3. On the confirmation prompt, click Yes.

You do not need to uninstall Watson 1.5, which is included with Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
