Uninstalling OpenCL SDK 1.5 on Windows 10 after upgrade from Windows 7


I installed OpenCL SDK 1.5 when my computer had Windows 7 Home. It is now upgraded to Windows 10 Home. When I try to install "OpenCL runtime for Intel Core and Xeon Processors" I get the error message "An out-of-date version of the OpenCL runtime package is already installed on your machine. Remove any previous installation before you continue."

When I try to uninstall the OpenCL SDK 1.5 I unfortunately get the error message "Intel(R) OpenCL SDK 1.5 designed to work on Windows 7* or Windows Vista* only. The installer detected that you're trying to install the SDK on a different version" and then the installer exits without uninstalling.


How do I remove the Intel Open CL SDK 1.5 on Windows 10?
