Hi,

I believe there's an article in MSDN (was it a KB one?) explaining how to
deal with such situations. In a nutshell, the Windows Installer-generated
references are stored in a registry (there are different places for
per-machine and per-user references) and can be removed from there with
RegEdit should "legitimate" uninstall fail for some reason.

I have been in the same situation and only editing the appropriate registry
key enabled me to uninstall the assembly.

P.S. The key you are talking about is not the one I've used.

"DisableCacheViewer"=dword:00000001

"Hack"

By any remote chance, did this machine have MSN Messenger 6 installed?

For some reason, Messenger 6 affects the ability to remove assemblies from
the GAC. It's possible to "fix" the problem by removing a particular
registry key, details of which I can dig out of my notes if it'd help.
