I have a package Microsoft SQL Server Manager which i need to make an uninstallation of!!
To uninstall i use the cmd msiexec /x {productcode} /qb!

Under the uninstallation i get the message: Error 1306. Another application has excluse access to the file c:\program file\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Log\Error\Errorlog. Please shut down all other application and try again

I have only Sql Server Manger running on my test computer. I figures out if i kill the process SQLSERVERManger in TaskManger the uninstalltion works fine!! And here is my question how do i do this the best way!!!
Is there a cmd-line i can use to kill this process??
Or should i write a vbs file which does it!!! (If so-how should it look like)???

Do you have any other suggestion to solve this please tell me

SQL Server holds a number of files open while it's running. You may find it worthwhile to stop all the SQL services before attempting to uninstall it...

Nice catch, Frank. I should have added in my reply to the OP that killing the process is a great way to completely screw up your SQL database(s).
