Uninstalling PowerShell Studio 2015 gives GetLastError: 50

Postby rvdnieuwendijk » Wed Feb 03, 2016 5:42 am

When I try to uninstall PowerShell Studio 2015, because my trial period is over, I get the following error message:

PowerShell Studio remove error 50.PNG
PowerShell Studio remove error 50.PNG (7.17 KiB) Viewed 5628 times

The problem might be related to my profile being on a network share. Is there a way to solve or workaround this problem and uninstall PowerShell Studio 2015?

Product, version and build: SAPIEN PowerShell Studio 2015, version
32 or 64 bit version of product: I am not sure, but probably the 64 bit version
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 8.1
32 or 64 bit OS: 64 bit OS

I uploaded a tool that should help solve this issue for you as it removes the entries in the Registry that are associated with SAPIEN products. Since the InstallFix doesn't remove references outside of the registry, you need to run the tool, then install the product, and attempt uninstalling one last time.

PLEASE NOTE: Use this tool at your own risk, it's recommended that you backup the registry beforehand just to be on the safe side.
