SCCM 2012 R2 Uninstallation Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Getting this error

    The version of Configuration Manager on the Installation Media is older than the version that's installed on the computer. Downgrading is not allowed

  • So you went to add/remove programs from the control panel of the system, scrolled down the list, found System Center Configuration Manager, selected it, and then chose uninstall?

    If so, why not just reload the OS on the system?

  •     Ok, found the answer myself. Got the idea, when trying to perform site reset from the command line - it said that probably install.map file is corrupted. I checked and it looks like all the permissions were gone from the file. Re-added Full Control to Administrators and SYSTEM and voila! It works now. BTW - if I called MCCS every time something is broken I wouldn't have a job by now ;-)

  • If you are trying to uninstall, why would you use setup from media? Just go to Add/Remove programs and run uninstall from there.

  •  Hi,

        I've got the same problem. Why not reinstall the OS? Cause for instance I would like to only change the SMS Provider configuration. But right now I cannot - it throws very the same error every time

  • Ok, I will bite what do you want to change with the sms provider?

  • A That's a different scenario.

    B Where *exactly* are you running setup.exe from?

  •  I want to change the SMS Provider server to the new one. I am right clicking on SCCM 2012 Primary Site Setup (it's SP1 CU5) in Add/Remove Programs. I also tried running setup.exe from \bin\x64 - same error
    Tuesday, January 5, 2016 2:21 PM
  • And what error exactly are you getting?

    Did you try running setup.exe from \bin\x64 elevated?

  • Time to open a support case then with Microsoft Customer Support Services.

  • Aha

        Do you know which registry entry/file version is checked when running setup.exe?
