  • Hi

    After many attempts, I think I've got the answer.

    Here it is:

    To uninstall VS2008 Team Suite without setup cancelling

      Uninstall all updates to the package(
        Click on 'View Installed Updates' in the upper left corner
          of Programs and Features (Vista Only)

    This worked for me, if it doesn't you may have to do the following;

    2.2.2.4. Manual uninstall of Visual Studio 2008.

    You must uninstall Visual Studio 2008 components in following order.

    Open Add or Remove Programs (Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008).

    1.   Remove "Microsoft SQL Database Publishing Wizard".
    2.   Remove "Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008".
    3.   Remove "Crystal Reports Basic 64-bit Runtime for Visual Studio 2008 (x64)". This step is required only if Visual Studio is installed on a 64-bit computer.
    4.   Remove "Microsoft Windows SDK for Visual Studio 2008 SDK Reference Assemblies and IntelliSense".
    5.   Remove "Microsoft Windows SDK for Visual Studio 2008 .NET Framework Tools".
    6.   Remove "Microsoft Windows SDK for Visual Studio 2008 Win32 Tools".
    7.   Remove "Microsoft Windows SDK for Visual Studio 2008 Headers and Libraries".
    8.   Remove "Microsoft Windows SDK for Visual Studio 2008 Tools".
    9.   Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Remote Debugger". This step is required only if Visual Studio is installed on a 64-bit computer.
    10. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition".
    11. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server Native Client".
    12. Remove "Microsoft Device Emulator version 3.0".
    13. Remove "Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK R2 for Smartphone".
    14. Remove "Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK R2 for Pocket PC".
    15. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 For Devices".
    16. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Design Tools".
    17. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5".
    18. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the 2007 Microsoft Office System Runtime".
    19. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office system (version 3.0 Runtime)".
    20. Remove "Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5".
    21. Remove "Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 SP2".
    22. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio".
    23. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio Web Authoring Component".
    24. Remove "Microsoft Document Explorer 2008".
    25. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 64bit Prerequisites". This step is required only if Visual Studio is installed on a 64-bit computer.
    26. Remove "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5".

    If neither of techniques don't work, I don't where else to look

    Happy Coding
