    Recently I installed MS Virtual PC 2007 and had allocated about 65G of
    virtual hard disk space on the virtual machine.

    After having uninstalled it and deleted the virtual machine, I downloaded a
    trial version of MS SQL Server 2005 (developer's edition; SQLEVAL.exe); the
    installation wizard prompted me that I was running out of disk space from
    the local hard disk (C:).

    Could the problem be related to MS Virtual PC?

  2. Uninstalling Virtual PC will not remove the virtualizations and the harddrive
    files they are using. You will need to remove them manually. The default path
    for them are in the documents folder that you used to run virtual pc as and
    "My Virtual Machines".

    If you remove that folder you should free up some diskspace that was used by
    your virtual pc machines.

    I believe that was empty actually. The free space on the hard disk was
    showing as having 45.4 G of free space (checked Logical Disk Manager), whilst
    the setup program was still displaying the 'unsufficient disk space error
    message'.
