I am having a problem reinstall SQL Express 2005. I had it installed, but then I unistalled it. I have tried installing it again, but everytime I do it says that the product is already installed. There is no instance of it in my Add/Remove Programs. I have read the threads that relate to this topic, but they haven't helped. I have looked at my logs of the installs, but they don't make sense neither. I just want the program installed again, or a way to get it so that I can use it.
When I try to manually uninstall using msiexec.exe /x <processid> I get an error saying that the package could not be opened. This happens with all the process ids I use that I get from the log files (I have 11 logs).
am using Visual Basic 2005 and trying to create a database, and it will not let me. That is how I know that it is not installed, plus I can not find any instance of it one my computer. Please help. Thanks.
