MSDE uninstall (remove) fails
Posted 23 January 2002 - 02:28
Anayway, I followed the instructions on the msdn page
'Managing Desktop Engine Installation Package Files'. This appears to work (at least on machines that do not have sql server sp1 installed). The server starts and i can connect to it, create databases, etc.
However, when i try to remove the MSDE installation - it fails both if i use add/remove programs or i run msiexec /x using the msi file used for the installation.
The log file winds up with 3400 lines,

There are some lines in the log file like:
MSI (s) (20:F0): Note: 1: 1402 2: UNKNOWN\Installer\Features\3C3B59EA19576DA4AB84301D944F7B59 3: 2
is the UNKNOWN in this message a problem?
has anyone else tried using a customized msi file instead of merge modules?
