Error 1720 When Trying To Uninstall Ad Aware 2007
Posted 20 June 2007 - 10:39 PM
Error 1720: There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
I looked at the other posts on the topic and tried following the instructions. The problem I ran into after downloading an intact version of the installer program was it gives me the message of :
Ad-Aware 2007 version 188.8.131.52 is already installed. You must uninstall the existing version before intstalling Ad-Aware 2007 Version 184.108.40.206. Do you want to uninstall the existing version of Ad-Aware 2007?
When I tried that I get the Error 1720 message and it brings me back to Do I want to uninstall the previous version.
I gave up on that anf tried to manually uninstall it. I ran the uninstall Tool from CCLeaner and it then allowed me to go in and manually delete the Ad Aware folder. then I ran the registry tool from CCleaner and removed the settings it found for AD Aware 2007. I restarted the computer but I run into the same issue of Ad Aware 2007 appearing in the start menu and Add/Remove programs with the 1720 error and I'm back to square one.

For details on why McAfee won't play nice with Ad-Aware, please see my post at the end of this Topic: Uninstalation and fixing Registry, Need help with ad-aware uninstalation /McAfee virus scan issue
I was oroiinally trying to install Mcafee Total Protection 2007 on it for my client and Mcafee won't install unless I remove Ad Aware.
The regedit details are for AAW SE - should work the same for AAW 2007.
One way to remove AAW 2007 is to re-run the installer, which will bring up the following:
Try selecting "Remove" - if it still gives you an error message, the select "Repair", rerun the installer and select "Remove".
Then follow the regedit instructions ( as always, be very careful when modifying the registry - do a reg backup first).
