How to completely remove VWD Express and SQL Express, incl REG settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1872032969 posted

    I need to completely remove both the VWD Express and SQL Express Edition from my machine. Because the SQL install files are so large, I want to make sure I am COMPLETELY removing any references to databases or connections from VWD before I attempt a fresh install. This will save me time in the end as I am afraid simply uninstalling both and then reinstalling using as I did intially will only find the database I had in before, and I would like to start from scratch. Is there any need to modify my registry before or after the uninstallation process?
