I am installing POS software (Piece of Sh#$) that also installs MSSQL7. It has been installed and running fine for a few months. There was a problem with the POS software so tech support had my secretary uninstall it. Now it won't install MSSQL7, particularly C:\MSSQL7\BINN\SCM.exe. I have been on with tech support and have removed items from the registry, stop service, stop antivirus, until I am blue in the face. Anyone have any idea why SCM.exe won't install. I am told its the actually database. I am willing to try just about anything but format and reinstall.
Installed on workstation with Windows XP Home in a standalone mode.
