Removing SQL Server Components manually

Very handy if there is ever a need to remove individual components of SQL Server

Step 1: Make sure that the Microsoft SQL Server Setup Support Files component is installed

In Add or Remove Programs, make sure that Microsoft SQL Server Setup Support Files appears in the list of installed programs. (If not there then install off media – Servers\setup\sqlsupport.msi)

Step 2: Run the command to uninstall the SQL Server components

At a command prompt, run the following command:

"%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\ARPWrapper.exe /Remove"
