Uninstalling MSDE...

I just lost 2 hours trying to uninstall a MSDE installation

I tried to uninstall it from Control Panel but I got "Fatal Error"

Then I tried running msiexe.exe /x {E09B48B5-E141-427A-AB0C-D3605127224A} /L*v
C:\uninstall_MSDE.log and it show error: MainEngineThread is returning 1603

I was thinking about doing a manual uninstallation but Max gave me the right solution:
"Vitto, try to uninstall it logging on the console instead of using Terminal Service.... "

It works...

  1. uninstall.. shoot. I've been fighting with trying to install it :P

    Can MSDE be used inthe same way access dbs are? i.e. you can put them on a webserver and access them through a connection?

  2. Yes sure, you can use it like Access but it's more powerful
