"An exception occurred while uninstalling. This exception will be ignored and the uninstall will continue. However, the application might not be fully uninstalled after the unistall is complete, --> the project factory CSharp is not registerd, template C:\Projects\SrvcFact3\Guidance Package\Templates\Items\DataContractModel.vstemplate cannot be installed."

It appears uninstalled, and indeed a install/reinstall of the 20o0 CTP has similiar errors about CSharp.

I had vs 2005 on my pc w/ wssf modeling working. Uninstalled vs 2005, installed vs 2008. Now things are hosed. How to manually clean this?

Guidance automation packages will not unistall either.

I got everything uninstalled except the Guidance Automation Toolkit. The GAT uninstall errors:

"Unable to get installer types in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies\MetaGuidancePackageInstaller.dll assembly. --> Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information."

Try with setp #3 and run the GAT/GAX uninstall. If that still fails, proceed with the rest of the steps.
