Uninstalling SQL Server Embedded Edition (SSEE)

To uninstall the SSEE that comes with WSUS 3 BETA do the following.
For 32-bit Platforms (x86)
msiexec /x {CEB5780F-1A70-44A9-850F-DE6C4F6AA8FB} callerid=ocsetup.exe

For 64-bit platforms(x64/AMD64)
msiexec /x {BDD79957-5801-4A2D-B09E-852E7FA64D01} callerid=ocsetup.exe

*However, the removal of the application may not remove the default .mdb and .ldb files, which will cause a subsequent WSUS 3.0 installation to fail. These files can be deleted from the %windir%\SYSMSI\SSEE directory.

These instructions where found on Microsoft Web Site.
