- Product: Microsoft Exchange Server - This event occurs when you install Update Rollup for Exchange Server 2007 because a file that is updated by the update rollup is being used. See ME930809, ME935490, ME935999, ME940006 and ME953469 for details.
I was trying to uninstall Veritas Backup Exec on a Windows 2003 Server and had to stop the SQL service using SQL Server Service Manager for the uninstall to succeed.

In my case, the solution was to temporarily stop the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI, winmgmt) service. When you stop the WMI service it also stops the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) (sharedaccess) service so you can uninstall your software. Finally, you need to restart your computer. Or you can also use Windows Installer Clean UP tool from Microsoft to uninstall softwares installed by MSI packages.
