#Can you please check the ExchangeSetup.log which is located on the root drive i.e C:\drive\ExchangeSetuplogs then open it scroll towards the end & let me on which dll is it failing?

#Can you please upload the ExchangeSetup.log file if the above step is difficult for you.

# Most probably it woulld fail on DiagnosticCmdletController.dll however they are different locations like x64 or x86

#Search for the dll mentioned in the exchangesetup log file & note down the locations.

#If the un-installation of the hub role fails at DiagnosticCmdletController.dll then perform a registration of the dll i.e. regsvr32 "path of the DiagnosticCmdletController.dll" then perform un-installation of the hub transport role.

I managed to remove myself by first running a repair from the setup.com file and then hacking the references to the services.

This left the software in but allowed me to rerun the installer and install it.
