Reporting Services: Can’t Uninstall – The setup failed to read IIsMimeMap table. The error code is -2147024893

Ran into this error tonight trying to uninstall SQL Server Reporting Services. Not sure if it is just Vista, or XP and other OS’s as well, but the fix is to stop IIS and then re-run the Uninstall.

  1. MSDN suggests re-install Reporting Services which isn’t an option. It won’t re-install because the Reporting Services is already installed. Your suggestion helped. Thanks.

  2. 1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Services.
    3. In the Services window, right-click IIS Admin Service, and then click Stop.
    4. After the IIS Admin Service is stopped, right-click World Wide Web Publishing Service, and then click Stop.
    5. After the World Wide Web Publishing Service is stopped, close the Services window.

    Now just Try again to uninstall
