I have SharePoint Server 2010 trial version installed on a server. Recently, I installed updates for SharePoint and these updates caused problems in my web application and site collections.
I couldn't get rid of the problems so I removed SharePoint using an uninstaller tool + manual methods because the normal setup file was corrupt and didn't work no matter what I tried. I removed all sites, databases and files. I also made sure the Registry is clean.
Of course that was a wrong move. Now, when I try to reinstall SharePoint Server 2010, I get a message that says: trial editions and licensed editions of sharepoint cannot be installed on the same server.
So I'd be so grateful if someone would suggest any solution to overcome this problem. I don't want to format the server just because of this issue.
