Lync 2010 Decommission Error Removing McxStandalone.msi (Error returned while installing Code 1603)

Hello Readers,

I have recently been decommissioning Lync 2010 FE Server but ran into a weird issue where Removing Components from the Deployment would fail at the stage of removing mcxstandalone.msi as per the error message below.

Removing McxStandalone.msi(Feature_WebComponent_Autodiscover)..failure code 1603
Error returned while installing McxStandalone.msi(Feature_WebComponent_Autodiscover)..failure code 1603

MCX 3

I can confirm the McxStandalone.msi existed in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Lync Server\Deployment\cache\4.0.7577.0\setup but Deployment Wizard was just unable to remove this component from the FE. The only way to remove this component in the end was to Run the .msi and use the “remove button

Once Mobility was successfully removed from the Deployment, I was able to successfully continue the decommission of the FE

Thank you for reading
