    Question Sims Document Server Reinstall Help

    AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Ok i feel better now.

    Ive got an issue with a machine that we use as a stand alone sims system ( for training and playing around on)

    During the last update the database got a bit messed up.

    So i uninstalled sims + removed the database, tried to uninstall the document server and have hit a problem It will not uninstall. I've been in control pannel and is says that it cannot uninstall as a file is missing or corrupt.I have looked through the registery and cannot see anything that looks strange or is relating directlly to the document server

    Ive managed to reinstall sims with a new db and restore the data to that but i cannot re install the document server as it thinks that the old one is still there and keeps asking me to uninstall it.

    I really do not want to flatten the machine and reinstall it again from scratch but i will if i cant get this going again.

    So im stuck

    all help and advice welcomed

    thanks

    Andy

    Is the service running on the local system account. Can it interact with the desktop?

    woo hoo fixed it but not really sure how

    I spent a long time in the registery hunting down all traces of the document server
    then went into services and switched the service to manual start,then rebooted,
    once the laptop had rebooted i disabled the service by disabling the profile as it was the only way to make sure it wasnt trying to start.

    Then i deleted the old docserver folders from the c: drive and within programfiles sims.net
    rebooted again

    then reinstalled using simsint.exe and picked document store option

    rebooted

    reenabled service and set to automatic

    Rebooted

    and now it works

    Next time im just going to reimage the laptop.
    I'm soooo looking forward to doing the sql2008 conversion


    Thanks for the help

    Andy
