Pinned topic How do I uninstall DB2 8 on windows?

‏2013-06-12T19:09:59Z | db2 dbdsupport technical-article

DB2 UDB Version 8 uses "Windows Installer" technologies which have significantly changed the installation and uninstallation procedures from previous releases.

Although there are four methods of uninstalling DB2 UDB Version 8 for Windows, they are not all equally desirable. The primary option of uninstalling DB2 UDB Version 8 should be the ONLY option attempted. Other methods should only be attempted after the DB2 UDB Service team has been contacted, and determined that the uninstallation through the primary method has been unsuccessful.

The four uninstallation techniques are outlined in order of preference in technical article 1104569

    Hello!  We've had a number of clients respond through feedback to our technical documents indicating that they have further questions or comments that require additional dialogue.  Unfortunately, our feedback is anonymous, so unless an email address or other contact information is included, we have no way to get back in touch with you.
    Within DB2 support, the management team asked if we could somehow link our documents to the forums so that we could invite more discussion - like this!   As a start, we chose a small set of  technical articles and "seeded" the forum with initial entries so that we could have a starting place for conversation.  The documents have now been updated with links to the forums as well.  
    Hopefully, we will make DB2 support better by providing more interaction around our technical information!
