After a crash of my SDD, I tried to reinstall BCM (2010) in Office 2013 on the new sdd. The installation was not fully ended. There appeared a message that there were remains of an earlier version of SQL server still active or .

More exact I did the following things.
First I made the mistake of installing the 64-bit version, while I run Outlook 32-bit.
Then I tried the installation a few times, but failed.
After that I had a long conversation with someone from Microsoft, who with remote help erased all traceable threads of SQL server. All treable, because BCM keepsrefusing to install.
At the end the man from Microsoft came with total solution, so popular with helpdesks nowadays. A total reinstallation of the hdd. You can imagine my reluctance to do so. Certainly after I had to do that time consuming and stressy procedure only a few weeks ago.

Is there anyone here, a guru, a freak, a wizard, maybe even Bill himself who knows another more easy solution? Please?

Version 2, without some bugs removed:

Don't you love the old standby solution, "Format C:" :)

Go into Control panel, search for 'add remove programs' - is sql and bcm still listed? If so, uninstall every sql item listed and BCM, then reboot.
The Microsoft guy did even delete every hint in the registry. There must be someone up there who knows what is checked to let the message appear.

So they cleaned out all sql keys in the registry and it still says its installed? Is there any sql entry in Add & Remove Programs? (SQL adds a lot of entries.) Are there any SQL folders on the hard drive - use search to look for sql.

Try right clicking on the BCM installer and choose Run as administrator.
The error log should hold some clues - the error message should tell you the exact path.
