Tools for Apache Cordova for Visual Studio 2013 - Blocking Update and Cannot Uninstall

by 24. January 2016 07:07

I was trying to update Visual Studio 2013 and could not as it was complaining that I needed to remove an older version of "Tools for Apache Cordova for Visual Studio 2013".  I went into my Control Panel and found "Tools for Apache Cordova for Visual Studio 2013 - CTP3.1" as an installed program and tried to uninstall; however, that would immediately say it completed and would not actually remove it.  To force the removal I had to search in my "%ProgramData%\Package Cache" folder for the "MultiDeviceHybridApps_VS.msi" file.  Then run the following command from an administration command prompt using the full path to the MSI.

misexec /x FULL_PATH_TO_MSI_HERE
