SQL Server CTP Removal

Okay, so my uninstall of the Visual Studio and SQL Server Betas didn’t go as well as I’d thought.  No problems on the VS side of things, but I’ll be damned if I could get SQL Express to install on my machine.  Luckily I found Aaron Stebner’s blog and his two posts (this and this) that outlined how to go about removing the remenant traces of the msi installations.  I followed the instructions and, voila, my next attempt at installation of SQL 2005 Express went just wonderfully.
