I downloaded the latest trial version of BB Enterprise Service 10 and removed EVERY SPEC of BB software from my computer. However when I attempt to install ES10 I receive the following error message: "The setup application detected that a BlackBerry Management Studio instance is already installed on this computer...." There is nothing left for me to uninstall. I even deleted files that didn't delete during the uninstall. Can anyone give me some guidance on what this install software might be seeing, or what it’s looking for so that I can delete it? My system is showing NO Research In Motion software installed.
Solved! Go to Solution.

did you remove the BES databases from SQL?
its a manual removal process
uninstall SQL and then delete all SQL folders when done.

Thanks for the quick reply. I've deleted every SQLServer application installed on my computer and the directory structure it was installed in. It gives the same error, but I hope to restart soon and try again. Hopefully bouncing the computer will clear any remaining problems. I'll let you know how it goes.

when you say computer, are you running a sevrer OS on it?

No, I'm not running a server OS.
It's a long story, but in a nutshell here's what's going on. When I got my z10 when they were first released I was under the impression that it had the ability to have two OS's or "desktops" on it. One for work and one personal use based on commercials etc. Before any real information was posted about this misconception I came to the conclusion that the second desktop was only available for Enterprise users, so I downloaded a 2 person trial copy of Blackberry Enterprise Service and hooked my phone up to it hoping to "activate" the ability to have two desktops. After I'd monkied with it for a while with no success others were also posting about it in blogs and forums that they were under the same impression and finally some of the guru's made some posts clearing up the confusion. By then I was knee deep into it and then things got busy at work, so I wasn't able to "disconnect" my phone from the Enterprise Service. By the time I did get back to trying to disconnect my phone from being an Enterprise device my Blackberry Enterprise Service trial period had expired. The annoying thing that I'm suffering from and now trying to correct, after putting up with it for 9 months, is that my phone has a mandatory password policy from hooking it up to the Enterprise software (I didn't mind at first becuase I thought it was a small price to pay for having two desktops). I've been entering a password to unlock my phone ever since, but have recently become anoyed that the keyboard is hard to see (I'm getting older) and won't automatically link to the bluetooth in my car unless it's unlocked first. Sometimes I'm rolling before I unlock it and it's a real pain because my radio keeps flashing HF (Hand's Free failure) and won't show the radio station, or clock until it links with my phone's bluetooth. So what I'm really trying to do is get my phone's password policy turned off! The button to turn the password off /on is greyed out I believe because I hooked it up the Enterprise Service software and never released it before the software expired. Any ideas?
I deleted the old copy and download a new "trial" copy, but even after reboot it comes up "The setup application detected that a BlackBerry Management Studio instance is already installed on this computer...."
I also deleted every instance of SQLServer and every tool that had SQLServer in the name from off of my computer.
Your input is appreciated.

you have to remove Balance from device which will remove the IT policy
BES 10 on a non server OS is not supported.

password could be part of Exchange active sync policy
Do you have corporate email on it?

Here's a screen shot of my z10 showing the password slider grayed out and no "balance" option in the drop down menu.
Thanks again for your help with this!
