[wix-users] My custom action fails to run sc.exe commands

I have a custom action that is being run during the uninstall just before
the removal of files:
*<Custom Action="CA_DeleteWindowsServices" Before="RemoveFiles">REMOVE ~=
And here is the declaration of my custom action in my main wxs file which
defines it as a deferred with impersonation set to NO:
*<CustomAction Id="CA_DeleteWindowsServices" Return="check"
Execute="deferred" Impersonate="no" />*
The custom action implementation (C#) is quite simple, it just deletes some
windows services using the command "sc.exe delete my_service_name"
The thing is, that on some computers it runs well and on some computers it
fails to delete the services, and when I check the installer log, where I
trace the exception if deletion fails then I see this logged error:
*Network shell process exited with code1062*
Any ideas what I need to do or what I am missing? If needed I can share the
code for the custom action as well, although as I mentioned it's a simple
code using sc.exe delete option.
Thanks in advance,
