Remove SQL 6.5 From an XP PC - 05-19-2004 , 03:06 PM
How can I remove SQL 6.5 from an XP machine. I think my
installation is corrupt as I can't connect to any server
as it tells me they don't exist due to a network error.
Other users are okay. Network support have checked and I
was able to connect to an alternative server, but today
that stopped working too. I want to remove it so that I
can try re-installing, but it doesn't show in add/remove
Any ideas/help would be appreciated.

The following article ahs the steps:
INF: Manually Removing SQL 6.5 After Failed Install
The problem may not be the installation of SQL Server 6.5 but the
installation of the SQL Server 6.5 connectivity pieces.
Check out the following registry key;
and make sure the DSQUERY is set to DBNETLIB.
You are aware that SQL Server 6.5 is not officially supported on Windows XP.
