I have tried to install V8 on Vista with no luck and I dont have the time to try and figure out where the problem is. Now, when I try and uninstall DB2, the uninstaller complains about Windows installer running and wont complete the uninstall. LOL, I should have known better, but does anybody know how to force the uninstall of DB2 or is a manual delete from the registry?

have you tried to install again ?
when db2 installs, i think the install log file lists all the registry entries it edited and all the files it copied into system libraries so you can use that to trace what it was doing

thanks momi, but after a lot of headaches, I got Vista to uninstall it by killing the pid of the installer while the uninstall was working. Apparently, DB2 uninstall on Vista launches multiple installers which are then locked by Vista OS, so when the uninstaller tries to update the installer, it cant continue.
Sounds crazy, but obvioulsy V8 wasnt designed with Vista in mind.
