Manually remove BE2012


Some background:

I have a SBS 2011 server that was having some issues (that have been resolved) so I needed to uninstall Backup Exec 2012. That went fine and the server issues were fixed. Then I went to re-install BE2012 and when I rebooted the server blue screened. So to restart the server I had to use "last known good".

That brought the server up but (naturally) not BE. so I attempted an unstall via Programs & Features, that did not work. I tried to reinstall, that did not work, failed on SQL. I tried to manually remove SQL but that did not work.

So, now I have a box that works fine but I cannot re-install BE2012 and cannot remove what is left over.

Any suggestions would be welcome.


version: BEx64=14.0.1798.17a.HF1c
