Unable to uninstall OCS - VC++ 2005 Framework not detected RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was testing OCS on a server and would now like to uninstall it. However when I try to remove it with Add/Remove Programs, I get the following error: "Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 installation or uninstallation requires that VC++ 2005 SP1 Redistribuatable is already installed. Either user Setup.exe for installation or run VCRedist_x86.exe included with the product to install the redistributable", even though it is installed.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the redistr multiple times, updated it to SP1, but the Setup program still won't recognize it. My concern is if I just delete it, then it will leave remnants in AD. Any suggestions?
