You do not need to uninstall wincache.
Open your php.ini file find the extension section for wincache
put a ; character in the first column next to the wincache.dll is listed.
save the php.ini file.
Then move the wincahe dll out of the php/ext folder.
Restart the web server. The wincache is now not part of the used extensions.

Is Web Platform Installer that does not allow you to install WordPress? What error do you get when you try to install it?

The error is:
"The existing WinCache Extension on this machine must be uninstalled before installing the latest WinCache version through Web Platform installer"
The "Accept" button is not active on WebPI to proceed.
any suggestions on how to remove WinCache?

Usually uninstalling wincache from Add/Remove Programs should take care of it. I am not sure why wincache is not present there on your machine.
If you have php_wincache.dll file in either C:\Program Files\PHP\ext\php_wincache.dll or C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\ext\php_wincache.dll then remove it from there. WebPI is looking for presence of this file to determine if the old version of WinCache is
installed. Starting from WebPI 3.0 PHP is installed in C:\Program Files\PHP\v5.X\ directory and wincache is installed in C:\Program Files\PHP\v5.X\ext\ directory.
