My installation directory was: "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vantage FX Trader" Using Add/Remove Program sequentially pops up two admin password dialogs and then denies uninstalling, stating: "You do not have sufficient access to uninstall VantageFX Trader. Please contact your system administrator." Manually navigating to the Uninstall.exe and running as Admin gives the message: "A referral was returned by the server."
