I installed SQL 2008 Express on 64 bit Windows 7 Professional. During this standard installation I got an error installing Reporting Services. Now I cannot uninstall Reporting Services as I always get 'Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow' error and the uninstall program fails. I have tried uninstalling all of SQL 2008 and just the Reporting Service but always get this same error. BTW I have been using the Control Panel program to uninstall.
I have also tried doing a repair to SQL 2008 but it will not fix Reporting Services. I tried installing SP1 but it says that it will not run because SQL 2008 Express did not get installed correctly and so it aborts. Frustrating !
I have 2 computers and installing on the 2nd computer WITHOUT Reporting Services worked okay. Then installing SP1 was okay on the 2nd machine. Then yesterday I bought SQL 2008 Developer edition, removed successfully SQL 2008 Express on 2nd machine, installed the new Developer edition WITH Reporting Services and bang! There it is... the Arithmetic error, and now on my 2nd machine I am also unable to remove Reporting Services. So.. both machines are down with the same error.
Clues: I am running IIS 7 on both machines and also ColdFusion. I have tried stopping and disabling IIS too.
