Trying to upgrade a backup exec agent to 12.5 and it says the server edition is installed and it needs to be removed. How ?

I am trying to upgrade the backup exec agent to 12.5. However, I get an error saying "Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers already exists. Unistall Backup Exec, and then run the setup again." The problem is I have uninstalled Backup Exec for Windows server. I removed any folders that it left behind and have removed everything out of the registry that has backup exec in it.

Does anyone know what I need to remove to allow the new agent to install ?

Was the full version of Backup Exec on the server or was it just the remote agent?  Did you also remove the service keys from the server as well?
