Push the tool over the pin.
Push the pin into the tool from the backside of the connector and hold it there.
Push the tool over the pin again.
Gently pull the wire.
If it doesn't come out, reseat the tool, then push the wire back in harder while pushing the tool in harder. You have to get the pin to slide into the tool just a bit (and there is less than a bit of playroom to work with.).

Art, I assume you are using the correct tool since the high-density and regular D connector use different tools

It's not my fault... I'm sure that the pins moved by themselves in the middle of the night... but some of the pins in my high density D-Sub connector are in the wrong places.
I have the right tool: https://www.steinair.com/product/insertionremoval-tool-for-high-density-d-sub-pins-mil-spec/
I have successfully removed regular density pins from DB-25 connectors.
These darned high-density pins refuse to come loose.
Before I make things worse, do you have any suggestions?
