Initally I installed SQL server 2008 R2 Evaluation version. Then we bought licence key for SQL server 2008 R2 Web and wanted to update my licence, but unfortunately I installed analysis service when I was installing evaluation version which is not there in Web version so now I have to un-install analysis service. I googled this thing but found no real help.

To remove an instance of SQL Server Analysis Services:

  1. On the Microsoft Windows desktop click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add or Remove Programs.

  2. Under Currently installed programs, select Microsoft SQL Server, and then click Change. This will start the Microsoft SQL Server Maintenance Wizard.

    Note: If you click Remove instead of Change, you will not be able to uninstall an instance of Analysis Services without also uninstalling the SQL Server Database Engine and Reporting Services installed under the same instance name.

  3. On the Component Selection page, under SQL Server instances, select the instance that includes the instance of Analysis Services that you want to remove.

  4. On the Feature Maintenance page, select Analysis Services. The Microsoft SQL Server Maintenance Wizard then launches the Microsoft SQL Server Installation Wizard.

  5. On the Change or Remove Instance page, click Remove Microsoft SQL Server.

  6. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on subsequent wizard pages.
