I am trying to uninstall QTP from my laptop before installing UFT 14. Mostly to save space. I don't know if old versions on the machine are OK.
I get an error saying that I am being blocked and to contact my administrator. I am the only user on the machine. I would think that I am the admin.
What should I do?
When in Florida, Don't Tampa with the code. I made this up.
I want to install UFT 14 but it gives an error saying that I have to remove QTP first.
Control panel and uninstall gives me error saying:
This app has been blocked for your protection.
An administrator has blocked you from running this app. For more information contact the administrator.
I ran the file. It is the QTP one that gives the option to install, repair or delete.
Delete gives me the error above.
I tried lowering the User Account Control. Same error.
I cross posted this question on Joe Colontonio's site. I hope that is OK.
I got this helpful tip from:
How to Circumvent “This App Has Been Blocked For Your Protection” to Install Apps In Windows 10
open the CMD window with admin rights by right clicking.
Navigate to the c:\windows\installer\1ab3b8.msi file and run it.
Now you wont get the error and you can get rid of QTP.
Everything now in UFT install/uninstall requires local admin rights.
In our company, IT Security Team remov.ed local admin rights even on our local PCs. We have to open a ticket to get a temporary 4-8 hours of having a local admin rights.
