  2. Choose ION Enterprise and click on Change/Remove.
  3. Click on Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Edition (ION) and choose Remove. This step will uninstall MSDE and should be done only if MSDE is not being used by any other application on the system.
  4. Navigate to the install directory of ION Enterprise. The default location is D:\Program Files\PowerMeasurement. Delete the Power Measurement folder.

    • Detach the current ION_Data database and the ION_Network database
    • Attach the ION Enterprise ION_Data and ION_Network databases
    • Restart ION Services
  2. Control > Add Remove Programs
  3. Choose ION Enterprise 5.5 Demo > Remove. Choose the Remove radio button in the installer shield.
