#MIM2016 Troubleshooting: Uninstall fails with error – Administrator privileges are required to run installer. Please re-launch installer with administrator privileges.

I’ve got a new post up on TechNet Wiki about MIM2016 troubleshooting:

Full version at the TNWIKI: MIM2016/FIM2010 Troubleshooting: Uninstall fails with error – Administrator privileges required

Feel free to add useful information yourself, I’m looking forward to your feedback and cooperation to make it better.

The short version is below.

Rikard Strand Jump has published a similar article, which has served as baseline for this article. Rik’s article is focussed on DirSync, but the troubleshooting below is more widely applicable and even programs not related to FIM/MIM/DirSync…

When you try to uninstall or to change the component from the Control Panel > Programs (Uninstall a program), you get a error pop up, saying:

Administrator privileges are required to run installer. Please re-launch installer with administrator privileges.
There are some troubleshooting steps, including running the Control Panel in administrator mode.
If that doesn’t work, you need to find the uninstaller info in the registry and run the msiexec command with the uninstaller info.
Open the registry editor and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

In this directory you’ll find the installed programs with their GUID, which is mostly fixed per application.

Eg

  • MIM 2016: {5A7CB0A3-7AA2-4F40-8899-02B83694085F}
  • DirSync/AADConnect: {C9139DEA-F758-4177-8E0F-AA5B09628136}

And finally, the quick and dirty option is to kill the uninstall registry key before your run the uninstall from the control panel again

In case of MIM2016
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{5A7CB0A3-7AA2-4F40-8899-02B83694085F}
You know the usual warning: I didn’t tell you to delete the registry key.

Note-to-self: Hotfix rollup package (build 4.4.1459.0) is available for #MIM2016 SP1

#FIM2010 & #MIM2016 Error 25009 fun stuff on #TNWiki

For the FIM Geeks, I’ve submitted some new FIM/MIM 25009 event troubleshooting articles on TechNet Wiki (http://aka.ms/Wiki)

Plus, a page the collects all the 25009 trroubleshooting resources, including lots of fun stuff of Tim Macauly.

If you got more of this 25009 fun stuff yourself, feel free to add your articles and add them to the collection page.

The new #MIM2016 book is out! Must have!

I just got the notice from Packt Publishing today that the new MIM2016  book has been published!
Go check at http://aka.ms/mim2016book.

David Steadman and Jeff Ingalls have been working very hard to create a reference piece of literature, so it’s a must have for your bookshelf.

From the early beginning of the book I’ve been involved in the reviewing, and although it has been a bumpy ride, it has been a great time!

I know my FIM/MIM geekiness/freakiness must have caused quite some headaches to the authors and the publishing project team at Packt, but just be sure it was for the better good.

The ebook version is awful cheap, but I’m going for the paper version anyway as I’m convinced it’s a must have.

So my future FIM/MIM students will have something to look forward to (meaning get their hands on MY copy of the book, … )
