When both the following conditions apply, the message "You must be an Administrator to remove this application" appears when you try to uninstall the Compliance Accelerator client from a computer in which User Account Control (UAC) is enabled:
You performed a per-machine installation of the client by using the MSI installer package,
Symantec Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator Client.msi. The issue does not arise when you choose to uninstall a per-user MSI installation or ClickOnce installation.
You tried to uninstall the client by right-clicking the MSI installer package and then clickingon the context menu. The issue does not arise when you uninstall the client through the Add or Remove Programs applet in Control Panel.
To uninstall the Compliance Accelerator client in these circumstances
Open a Command Prompt window with administrator privileges.
Type the following command:
msiexec /x "path_to/Symantec Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator Client.msi" /qb!
Where the /x parameter specifies that you want to uninstall the client, and the /qb! parameter displays a basic user interface during the uninstallation process.
