Removing old instance and reinstalling RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying to uninstall a previous installation of SQL server without success.  I have tried to uninstall every mention of SQL on my machine and they are all still visible in the App & Features menu.  I have tried to repair the program and overwrite with a new installation but nothing seems to work.

    If uninstall went without error, they still might be visible but that does not mean that the files are still present. Can you run discovery report and post output here.

    This should be better handled by Microsoft just so that people do not confuse themselves.

    Rest assured there is NO instance of SQL Server out their, what you are seeing is just the icons or options their, and do not be bothered about it. As i said MS should be little more cautious on this and remove the options as well
