I tried the above steps. But its saying removing dassault systemes software Prerequisites x86-x64 is forbidden because some dassault systemes is still installed. I have not installed any product of dassault. I was just trying to install CATIA and something went wrong and i wanted to unintstall and reinstall it. But now iam stucked up installing this stupid prerequisite software which is unnecessary acquiring 4.35 GB appox in my system. Now i totally hate this. Any software is good only if there are no complications whiling instaling it and uninstalling it. This is stupidity as iam still stucked and confused of how to get this junk out of my PC
