I've been receiving this error message since I uninstalled UPS Worldship from my computer. I did so, because the program took up too much space on my hard drive.

"Sql server could not find the specified named instance (UPSWSDBSERVER)-please specify the name of an existing instance on the invocation of sqlserver.exe."

"If you believe that your installation is corrupt or has been tampered with, uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem."

I have tried to reinstall to clear this error, however I am unable to complete the installation. Any suggestions are welcomed.
