After uninstalling more or less successfully SDL Trados 2007 (except for SDLX which is still remaining, but I am not able to uninstall it), I still can't install SDL Trados Studio 2015. (I have a previous version, 2011)

Here is the error message:
"Set-up did not complete. The error is:
Package 'Suite repair utility' could not be installed. Error number: -1."

What do I have to do? As recommended on the website, I have manually installed all the prerequisites and components but it still does not work.

The error message is still appearing.

Thank you for your precious help!
