The Shared feature directory is greyed out during installation. I have uninstalled all SQL Server 2008 instances and shared features.
I thought this might be caused by SQL Server 2008 Browser and SQL Server 2008 Setup Support Files were still installed. SQL Server 2008 Browser was used by SQL Server 2005 instances and was depending on SQL Server 2008 Setup Support
Files. I have uninstalled them but the Shared feature directory is still greyed out. So, how to install SQL Server 2008 shared features in another directory without uninstalling SQL Server 2005 instances and shared features? If it is not
possible due to shared tools between SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008, can it be done by only uninstalling SQL Server 2005 shared features? If yes, which SQL Server 2005 shared features must be uninstalled?
