Error uninstalling ASP.NET MVC RC

I got an error trying to un-install the ASP.NET MVC Release Candidate (so I could install the final RTM 1.0 version). The process would fail with the error "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package...".

In the Release Notes for Version 1.0 there is a note mentioning possible conflicts with some Visual Studio Add-ins. Listed amongst them was Clone Detective. I un-installed this application and I was then able to un-install the ASP.NET MVC Release Candidate successfully.

If you are having issues, check the Release Notes to see if you have any of the Visual Studio Add-ins listed.
