Error 1316 c:\windows\installer\ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) (x86).msi when trying to uninstall PWE


  1. Had user copy the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) (x86).msi for PWSS3 version to the c:\windows\installer folder then run the add remove again.  This time it worked.  User thinks that originally these machines where installed using and sms push and that the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) (x86) must have been temporarily placed on the machine and then removed after the install.

  2. Another possible solution would be to go to windows Control Panel, programs and features, find ProjectWise SS3 and do a modify\ repair, then try the uninstall.
