Why does the entered Challenge/Response Code (CRC) to uninstall SafeGuard Easy not work at PBA?


Since I’m not able to logon to the SafeGuard Easy Pre-Boot-Authentication (PBA), I attempted to uninstall SGE by using a CRC in the PBA. For this reason, I created a CRC with the remote command “Uninstall”. But, every time I enter this code, I get the following error message: “Invalid Response Code. Please try again”. What is causing this?

It is simply not possible to initiate an emergency uninstall of SafeGuard Easy using a CRC in the PBA. This code may only be used by a user already logged on to the operating system.

In order to uninstall SafeGuard Easy without having the appropriate rights, a user may use the challenge/response function (offered when “Start\Programs\SafeGuard Easy\Uninstall” was started) to "order" a code which gives the authorization to uninstall to the user.

Or, you may use Add/Remove programs and try to uninstall SGEasy.

The results are the same. It is not possible to remove SGEasy without the uninstall right.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
