I had installed webMethods on windowsXP in this folder d:\webMethods6.
I recently wanted to uninstall the service pack 3.
When I ran the unistaller from control Panel add or remove programs it exited with this error.
Invalid -installDir option, cannot find d:\webMethods6"\install\jars\DistMan.jar. The uninstaller is exiting.
I guess the reason was that it was adding a " in the folder path.
The steps given below was taken by me to uninstall the component.
- I started a command prompt in the folder d:\webMethods6\install\jars.
- Executed the command ‘java -jar DistMan.jar -installDir d:\webMethods6’
This started the uninstaller and I was able to successfully uninstall the required component. I hope it would be of help to anyone in the future.
