That message means the Component with {GUID} is still installed by another MSI package on the computer.

Subject: [wix-users] Wix3: Fail to remove stopped service

As i'm running uninstall and the service is stopped - it uninstalls the product, but the service exists.
Running with verbose logging, I see
MSI (s) (50:B4) [12:57:45:977]: Disallowing uninstallation of component:
{GUID} since another client exists

What does this mean? How can I fix it?
Thank You !
