When trying to remove all CA WAAE and WCC components from WIN2008R2 users get the message "AutoSys SDK being used by WCC. SDK will not be uninstalled."


Windows server 2008 R2

WAAE 11.3.* and WCC 11.3.*


Problem is related to the “WCC_lock” registry key that ties up WCC with the AE SDK.


1. Delete the "WCC_lock" registry key under : 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ComputerAssociates\Unicenter AutoSys JM\11.3_Base\CurrentVersion\SDKInstalled

2.  2. Uninstall WAAE SDK

Additional Information:

The windows server could contain only WCC. If we try to uninstall the WCC along with WAAE SDK, we get the above error. So the above scenario holds true on a WCC only server with latest WAAE SDK.
