    You can use db2unins -f to remove all copies of DB2:

    ran the above command but got the following error message

    Unable to open the Windows installer database 'D:\DB2v9\Install\ESE\db2\Windows\DB2 Enterprise Server Edition.msi'. The return code is 1624.

    How to go about it in this case, i have the DB2 installer in the above path. verified it too. just can't get the uninstaller working some way of other,

    need more help in going about this...

    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
