| Phantom Services|
I have had the unfortunate experience where I have had to uninstall one version of SQL Server (the express version for x86) because I need to install a different version (Enterprise vesion for x64).
Here is what I did. I first stopped the services. I then uninstalled all the programs that are mentioned as being SQL. I Then renamed a few directories so as to prevent the services from restarting. Then I rebooted.
But the services are still there -- at least the names of the SQL Services are still there in the Services list. And this is what prevents me from adaquately installing the new version of SQL Server.
How do I remove these SQL Services from the list of Services?
Even after running the Windows Cleanup Utility (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301), the services are still there.
