Manually uninstall Windows Internal Database

When you deploy Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 in a single-server configuration by using the Basic installation option, the Setup program automatically installs and configures Windows Internal Database. However, an entry for Windows Internal Database is not created in the Add or Remove Programs tool. If you remove Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, the Setup program does not automatically remove Windows Internal Database from the computer.

  • If you are running an x86-based edition of Microsoft Windows Server 2003, use the following command line to remove Windows Internal Database from the computer:
    msiexec /x {CEB5780F-1A70-44A9-850F-DE6C4F6AA8FB} CALLERID=ocsetup.exe
  • If you are running an x64-based edition of Windows Server 2003, use the following command line to remove Windows Internal Database from the computer:
    msiexec /x {BDD79957-5801-4A2D-B09E-852E7FA64D01} CALLERID=ocsetup.exe
