I am attempting to uninstall an instance of SQL Server 2000. When I run the SS2000 "change/uninstall" process in "Add/Remove Programs" (Control Panel), I get an error message stating that ...
"Unable to locate the installation log file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\....\Uninst.isu Uninstallation will not continue."
I have looked in the directory and the file is not there.How do I uninstall SS2000??
Can you try manual uninstallation, check the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q290991

I'd the same issue. I just tried to copy the missing .isu file from the folder(where I copied theinstallation CD) then i retried and worked for me. It was successful.
Note : I uninstalled twice once from setup.exe, installation wizard 'remove existing installation' and second time control panel 'add and remove programs'.
I'd to copy the files each time before i uninstall.
Good luck Guys !!!
