View Full Version : uninstalling VC++ Express Edition

Does anybody here know how to completely uninstall VC++ Express? I installed SQL with it. I am installing VS 2005 Standard instead. Just wanted to make sure I clean the PC properly first .

Does it not come with a uninstaller?

Add/Remove Programs? Maybe... look for any Visual Studio 2005 components you currently have installed and uninstall them.

IDE question, moving to GD.

I know when it comes to Visual C# Express all I have to do is uninstall three things - Visual C# itself, MSDN, and .NET Framework 2.0. Although you could just skip uninstalling the framework. Of course with Visual C++ you'd want to remove any extras you installed like the Platform SDK.

Maybe one of these days Microsoft will enhance the uninstall system to group entries by the programs or at least the companies they belong to.

You don't have to remove Express to install Standard. I didn't.

But you can from the Add/Remove programs if you wish to.

I have a question, how do you not have 2005 standard not install Just-in-time debugging system?
