    Automatically Uninstall SQL2005?

    Is it possible to uninstall SQL2005 from a command line? I've tried googling this but can only seem to find manual uninstall guides...

    Use the original installer MSI which you can extract from the exe using the /extract switch. From the MSI you should be able to use the msiexec sql.msi /u command to uninstall it. There is a WMI way that does not require the installer also:

    Just run the below as a VBS and substitute "Personnel database'" With the exact name of the SQL Application.
    Code:
    strComputer = "."
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
        & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
        & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
    Set colSoftware = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
        ("Select * from Win32_Product " _
            & "Where Name = 'Personnel database'")
    For Each objSoftware in colSoftware
        objSoftware.Uninstall()
    Next
