0x80073CF1 error when Remove-AppxPackage in powershell

Xie Steven 791 Reputation points


I got the the error code 0x80073CF1 when I use Remove_AppxPackage -Package "xxxxx" to uninstall the app in powershell.


I check the docuemnt: troubleshooting. It shows:

The package couldn't be found.
You may get this error while removing a package that isn't installed for the current user.

Does it mean that I need to use Remove_AppxPackage -Package "xxxxx" -AllUsers command to uninstall the app?

    The parameter -AllUsers removes the package for all user accounts on the computer and you need administrator permission to use it. You can run Get-AppxPackage -Name "xxxxx" -AllUsers to list the information about the package if it's installed.
