I have MS SQL SERVER 2008 installed.

I am trying to deploy a database solution that was created using VS2010.

I am getting the errors:
------ Deploy started: Project: MyProject, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------
Target "CheckRequiredProperties" in file "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\TeamData\Microsoft.Data.Schema.Common.targets" from project "C:\\MyProject\MyProject.dbproj" (entry point):

I don't know what it wrong.
When I launch SQL Server Management Server it asks me to select a 'Server Name'
There are 3 present here:

First, how do I uninstall the servers:
as these have been created by me as I tried to install a fesh install of SQL Server.

Does anyone know what is going wrong here.

It is:
REM --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REM Script Name:      BackupDatabase
REM Description:      Backs up the database before a deployment is done.
REM Justification:      This enables developers to retain their test data when they do a
REM                              database deployment (only runs in a DEBUG build).
REM --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ECHO Script Name: %0%
ECHO Configuration: %1%
ECHO DatabaseName: %2%

IF "%1%" EQU "Debug" (
      SQLCMD -b -S localhost -i BackupDatabase.sql -v TargetDatabaseName = %2 BackupDatabaseName = %2_backup

I see that it has the comment:
"This enables developers to retain their test data when they do a database deployment (only runs in a DEBUG build)."
So I set VS2010 to Release, when I do I deploy now I get:
