I am trying to uninstall java6 installed on windows 7 system.

I am getting following error
"Error 172. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete couod not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

I was able to unistall Java DB package. But after that I can not uninstall this Java 6 software.

How can I uninstall or install Java 6 again ?

Thanks

Hi Nirjari,

Which subversion of Java 6, you are having ?
Also How you are trying to uninstall it ? I am sure you are not just deleting the jdk/jre folder from C:\...<Java_location>.

Try installing higher version of Java 6 than the one you have previously installed. It might override the older one (Probably!)
