JSI Tip 8146. The .NET Framework Configuration tool reports an error when you attempt to remove an assembly from the global assembly cache on Windows 2000 SP4?

The subject error is:

Error: There was an error removing <name of assembly>

NOTE: If you using Windows Installer to remove the assembly, you receive:

Error: Assembly: <name>, Version=<version>, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=<public key token>, Custom=null Unable to uninstall: assembly is required by one or more applications Pending references: SCHEME: <WINDOWS_INSTALLER> ID: <MSI> DESCRIPTION : <Windows Installer>

These problems are indicative a corrupted registry value.

To resolve this problem:

1. Use Regedit.exe to navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Installer\Assemblies\Global.

2. If the (Default) Value Name, a string (REG_SZ) data type, contains a Windows Installer descriptor, remove the Windows Installer descriptor data value.

3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Assemblies\Global.

4. If the (Default) Value Name, a string (REG_SZ) data type, contains a Windows Installer descriptor, remove the Windows Installer descriptor data value.

NOTE: See Removing an Assembly from the Global Assembly Cache.
