    Im trying to reinstall WSUS on a DC running windows Server 2003 with SP1. I
    had it installed and working properly, then one of my work mates had the
    brilliant idea of changing the drive letter that it was installed on, which
    has caused me nothing but problems. WSUS was then not able to find the
    database since the drive letter had chnaged.

    So anyway i uninstalled it and now am trying to re-install it and it is
    failing wit the following errors:

    In the add/remove programs in controll pannel there is Microsoft SQL Server
    Desktop Engine (WSUS) which i cannot remove, it just comes up Fatal Error.

    Does anyone know how i can get this to work? im sure its just a problem with
    the SQL Engine but i really am all out of ideas.

    Any suggestions would really be great! thanks.

  2. It sounds like the uninstall did not function correctly -- which could have
    been the case if the database was not where the uninstaller expected it to
    be.

    Most likely you're going to have to manually 'purge' the remnants of the
    WMSDE installation from the system.

    If this was the only installed instance of an MSSQL product, then you can:
    (a) Delete the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server folder.
    (b) Delete the ~\WSUS\MSSQL$WSUS folder (except the SUSDB.mdf and
    SUSDB_log.ldf files).
    (c) Purge the registry of entries relevant to "Microsoft SQL Server",
    "WMSDE", and "WSUS".
    (d) Reboot the server.

    After rebooting, move the ~\WSUS folder back to where you want it. Reinstall
    WSUS. Configure the current location of the ~\WSUS folder when prompted --
    it will reinstall WMSDE, locate and attach to the previously existing SUSDB
    database, and link to the previously existing content store (in
    ~\WSUS\WSUSContent).

    If you continue to get errors, it'll be most likely tied to remnants of the
    original WMSDE installation.

    The key will be successfully purging all traces of the previous WMSDE
    installation(s) from the registry.
