How to manually uninstall App-V server RRS feed

  • Question

  • When installing App-V 5.0 SP1 server as a fault-tolerant service, as in article http://www.thinclient.net/blog/?p=344, I faced a weird problem: all of the App-V lines from IIS 8 manager in server node 1, suddenly disappeared. I don't understand reason, but I decided to workaround it by uninstalling (and then reinstall) the App-V Server product.

    However, when trying to uninstall the App-V product from the server, the uninstall ended up in error message:

        Uninstall did not complete successfully. For more information about this problem, see log files at (%temo%) folder.

    (happily, the second node installation has succeeded OK, and I can use App-V service from there)

    After studying the error messages from there, and to get the work easier, I decided to manually force uninstall the App-V server, and then reinstall it from scratch again. The components that now are there, are Mgmnt server, Publishing server and Reporting server. The Database is in its own server cluster.

    The answer is that: How to manually uninstall the App-V server?
