Manual uninstall integration components from Windows 2000/SBS 2000

Posted on 2011-05-09
Last Modified: 2013-11-06
It seems that we can't uninstall Integration Services Components from either a Windows 2000 server or a 2000 SBS server virtualized in HyperV 2008 R2 with the uninstall method.  Is there a manual method for doing so?

    try this:

    Insert the Integration Services Setup Disk

        Start the Hyper-V management console
        Start and Connect to your Virtual Machine
        Click on Action > Insert Integration Services Setup Disk

    Open the Command Prompt

        Log onto your virtual machine and open the command prompt
        At the command prompt browse to the Integration Services Setup Disk, typically this will be the CD/DVD marked as drive D:
        At the command prompt browse to D:\support\amd64 or D:\support\x86 (depending on yoru guest architecture). For this example I’m using the amd64 architecture folder.
        There you will find the integration component installation files for various countries, but the important file is the setup file. Listing the directory shows the following files:

    Uninstall the Integration Services

    To Uninstall the Integration Services from your Windows Virtual Machine, simply type the following at the command prompt:

    Setup.exe /uninstall

    Don’t forget to restart the guest virtual machine to make sure that the uninstall process has completed.

    Sorry I wasn't clear enough. We have tried this and it doesn't work. IS won't go away.  When I meant manual I meant manual - I understand there may be some files and registry keys that can be deleted to get rid of it.

    What is the purpose of removing all integration services? The VM requires some of these objects to run.Are you trying to upgrade the integration services to your current Hyper-V install?

    Author Comment

    We suspect it may be causing problems as there is one server that we have that it was installed on - our policy is not install from past experience with 2000 and Integration Components - but the person involved was not aware and installed it. We have not seen similar problems on 2000 systems where the Integration Components were not installed. It's just to fully eliminate the possibility that this difference makes a 'difference'.

    Ah I understand now, How hard is it just to spin up a new VM and just configure it the way you want it?  
    Apparently there is no real great solution to completely removing the integration tools completely. But a VM could be spun up pretty quickly!

    I  found the following link for Virtual PC and  the instructions referenced here seemed to work for HyperV as well:

    So that article looks like they were trying to upgrade the integration tools not removing them?
    Did  Renameing the following 2 files do the trick?
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\wdf01000.sys and

    Yup.  I confirmed as well with a colleague who had the same situation. Now we can see if it was an Integration components problem or not.  Thanks for the assistance.
