(2009-11-12) Removing Windows Sharepoint Services v3.0

Posted by Jorge on 2009-11-12


For a FIM 2010 RC1 I had to remove Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 (WSS3) and reinstall it. After reinstalling it I had found out the webpage was showing me the exact same info as before the removal. Then I remembered there was also something like a Windows Internal Database which is needed by WSS3. When removing WSS3, the Windows Internal Database is NOT removed automatically. It must be done manually. With previous versions it was specified in the Add/Remove Programs and with that you could remove it, but now it was not and there was no way to remove it through the GUI. The way to remove it is specified in the following KB article: MS-KBQ920277. It must be done through the command line.

Cheers,
Jorge
