Problem: 

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."

Environment:  

Windows server 2008 R2

WAAE 11.3.* and WCC 11.3.*

Cause: 

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

Resolution:

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.
