I cannot unistall SQL server 2008 and install server 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to use a piece of software called imagekeyworder which requires SQL server 2005, but it won't let me install that. I have been advised to uninstall all instances of SQL but when I try to do this with SQL2008 it fails. I'll post the details below, but if anyone could help I'd be very grateful, cheers, BobC9
