  • Hello Experts,

    I was trying to Uninstall SQL Server Instance using Powershell, but Constraint here is setup.exe file gets deleted once installation is done. So, I need to Uninstall without setup.exe.

  • There used to be a SQLServer "cleaner" utility that would uninstall SQLServer.  You can also download or find the original installation package and it will uninstall SQS.

    Post SQLServer deployment issues in the SQLServer deployment forum for any future issues.
