SQL4SAP.vbs

Hi,

I install SQL Server 2005 via SQL4SAP.vbs. It works. I uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs.

I want to reinstall via SQL4SAP.vbs but fail. It says default instance were found.

How do I delete the default instance manually?

Rgds,

Hapizorr Rozi Alias

    HI ,

    you should have a look in managment console .

    if there's a local SQL server it means that the default instance is still there .

    to remove it you can use as you said before with the Add/Remove Programms utility .

    good luck .

    Hi.. I know this is a very old query but want to answer it now at least.

    When the installation ended with errors, the default instance is visible for the installer, but we would not be able to login some times.

    In this scenario, install another named instance, and then uninstall one after the other from Control Panel -> Add/ Remove programs utility. (First the default instance and then named instance).

    Now you would be able to install it again perfectly.

    Better use the standard setup file instead of SQL4SAP.vbs to install the named instance.

    Hello,

    The correct way is:


    Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs

    Select SQL Server 2005 component -> click Remove

    The SQL Server 2005 Installation Wizard start

    On the Component Selection select any server and/or shared components to remove.

    Click in Report button and the list of SQL Server 2005 components and features installed on your computer appear

    click Next two times

    Click Finish


    Best regards
