How to delete a Vault View created via the ePDM API?

I have used the API to create a new Vault View.

 

edmVault.createNewVaultView(blah..blah);

 

How do I delete that View?

 

I have tried the following (as user having Administrator privs): Via windows explorer I right-click on the view and select delete, I receive a dialog, "Delete View - The view "blah..blah" was created by 'NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM'.  Only 'NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM' or an administrator can remote it."

 

I am logged in as an Administrator... but still receive the message and am unable to delete the view.

 

Windows 7

 

I have attempted various methods to delete the view, including connecting as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM via psexec.exe, but have had no luck or success. The psaexec method was mentioned at http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2682/recover-access-to-a-sql-server-instance/.

 

The API provides a method to create a view, but does NOT appear to provide a method to delete a view. 

 

Have any ideas on how one can delete a View create via the API?
