SQL 20008 UNINSTALL does not remove all installed components

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


- SQL 20008 UNINSTALL does not remove all installed components

After installing FEATURES="SQL,IS,TOOLS" and uninstalling every feature I know with :


- I still have these components left installed :

Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 ENU
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Shell(integrated mode)
Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2.0

Any ideas on which FEATURE to select to uninstall these from the command line ? (I do not want to uninstall manually from Control Panel Add Remove Programs.)

The DataFlow task has no components. Add components or remove the task.

Hello, we have the following problem: 1. Simple DTS-Packet with very simple data flow "Source -  Destination" from Access to SQL Server is prepared as file. It is executed under our own WinForm C# Application. 2. On one machine (SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition) everything works fine. 3. When we try to execute this package on another machine (SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition) we get message "The DataFlow task has no components. Add components or remove the task" and the task does not do anything. However, it runs fine under "dtexecui". We have already search the problem in the internet and could not find anything that could solve the problem (we don't use Source Safe). Thank you very much in advance, Vladimir

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Uninstall remove problem


In trying to install the 2010 Switched On Schoolhouse Home Edition it tries to install the SQL server then comes up with error message that it fails.


Tech support walked me through trying to delete all the SQL titles manually and I came to the last and only application of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 with a log file "80" that will NOT delete.


The IT told me it was corrupt in the registry.


Is there ANY way to delete this??? The new installation has a newer version but I think it is the same one.


Thanks, Ricky

Need complete, detailed instructions on how to remove/uninstall SQL Server 2008 and R2


There are thousands of forum posts related to uninstalling SQL Server that provide varied information.  Most refer to the BOL article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143412.aspx, which is useless in most error situations.  Can anyone provide true, complete instructions for removing all SQL Server components from a machine?  I'm not sure why there isn't a robust MS-provided utility for this, but I'll be relieved just to have a manual method.  I understand that there will be registry hacks, security group mods, folder deletions/renames from god knows how many places, and probably a cauldron of frog legs and shaken babies.  Just please don't make me cruise these endless seas of bogus forum posts any longer.  I am thirsty and seasick.

Thank you,


PS My Environment:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

SQL Server 2008 R2 (I think some of my old SQL 2008 "plain" install may still reside as well) Developer Edition - All components

Yes, I have VS 2010, which prbly caused the SQLExpress BS to hork my origh install in the first place.  I yearn for the day when VS and SQL teams kiss and make up.

SQL Server DTS Designer Components installed but can not find on the computer



I am in urgent need of help.

I have MS Access database to be converted into the SQL Server database.

Now I downloaded and installed MS SQL Server 2005 Management Studio and connected to the SQL Server database.

Now, I have to import the Access data in SQL server through SQL Server 2000 Import/Export client tool, for which I installed SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer COmponent.

I was able to install in the computer but I can not find any component on my computer.

I checked C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\    but I did not find any DTS\Binn\Dts*.exe there.  I do not know how and where to start the wizard to get the Import/Export utility.

I also checked in explorer Start->All Programs , menu but only See MS SQL Server 2005 and nothing related to DTS.


Please let me know what should I do and where to look for the components on my computer.

Update-SPSolution vs Uninstall, Remove, Add, Install

I just want to confirm that by calling Update-SPSolution with a new .wsp is just the same as calling it in four steps e.g.


or is there something else this method does?

Remove #Region from whole web site


Hi All,

I need to deliver source code to client and my boss need to remove all the comments and #region sections from the whole web site source code.

So is there any functionality available in visual studio 2010 or may be in an other 3rd party tool available to do so, which can remove all the #region from all over the source code ?

Otherwise my developers has to do donkey work.... :(( and I don't wish it. 

Any help or tips/tricks would be appreciated.


Web deployment project - web.config section replacement does not add remove tag


I have a web application that is actually installed as a component of a third party site.  In some configurations, I need to remove certain connection strings and re-add them.  I'm replacing this web.config section with a xml file that includes the following:

      <remove name="MyOverridenConnection"/>
      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"

For some reason the remove tag is left out during the substitution and I end up with the following in the installed config:

      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"

Is there any way to issue removes in replaced sec

Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features, P


This is the second of two articles discussing the extremely rich design-time features of the .NET Framework. Part 1 discussed the basics, showing you where to start and how to extend your control implementation through attributes and interfaces, as well as their effects on the property browser, code serialization, and other controls. Part 2 continues the journey by concentrating on design-time functionality that you can implement beyond your components and controls, including TypeConverters, UITypeEditors, and Designers. It would be impossible to cover everything you can do in two short articles, which is a testament to just how all-encompassing and flexible the design-time capability of the .NET Framework is.

Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features


Visual Studio .NET provides support for designing rich features into your controls and components, allowing you to set properties, set form placement, inherit from base classes, and much more. So how does Visual Studio .NET do all this? What does the Windows Forms designer do? What's the difference between a control and a component? How does Visual Studio integrate your controls so that they can access features of the .NET Framework?In this article, the authors answer these common questions by building a clock control and taking the reader along for the ride. In building the control, hosts and containers are illustrated, the property browser is explained, debugging is discussed, and a general overview of the design-time infrastructure is presented.

Contexts in .NET: Decouple Components by Injecting Custom Services into Your Object's Interception


The .NET Framework can use contexts as an object's execution scope and intercept calls going to and from the object, similar to the way COM+ provides component services. What is new with this mechanism is that the runtime allows developers to take part in the interception chain and add powerful services, thus extending existing component services. This in turn decouples the business logic from the system plumbing and simplifies long-term maintenance. Presently, .NET contexts and interception are undocumented aspects of .NET. This article presents the underlying interception architecture and message processing, explains custom context attributes, and walks through a custom interception-based component service.

.NET CLR Profiling Services: Track Your Managed Components to Boost Application Performance


The Microsoft .NET platform provides you with a rich set of services for building profilers and application monitors for applications targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). These services expose runtime events that occur during the execution of a .NET application. They can be used to obtain information about managed code being executed under the runtime. This article describes the .NET CLR Profiling Services and shows how to use the services to build a simple profiler that will provide hot spot information for any .NET application. The sample profiler can easily be modified to suit other profiling and monitoring needs.

Windows XP: Make Your Components More Robust with COM+ 1.5 Innovations


The next version of COM+, COM+ 1.5, offers many improvements over COM+ 1.0. A comprehensive user interface that displays more data for each application as well as complete support for legacy components make the management of existing applications easier and more efficient. Enhanced queueing support provides more flexibility for managing queued calls, and pooling and recycling means better application lifetime management. Application partitioning in COM+ 1.5 surpasses that offered in COM+ 1.0, and transaction isolation can be configured for safer transactions. COM+ 1.5 also allows you to expose any COM+ component as a Web service, as long as it meets certain criteria. This article discusses these and other new features in COM+ 1.5 that take care of much of the plumbing code, allowing developers to concentrate on business components.
