Error 1905 when uninstalling Autodesk Design Review 2012

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am trying to uninstall Autodesk Design Review 2012 but always received an error 1905. I tried removing on Control Panel's Add/Remove programs and still gives the same error message from Autodesk Inventor 2013 Beta 3. Please tell me how to fix it. The error is given below:

Autodesk Inventor 2013 Beta 3
