Removing MIM/FIM Service after removing Sharepoint

I removed Sharepoint from the FIM service (don’t do this!) and then I wanted to remove FIM service. The uninstall just kept failing.  And it would not allow you to install as well. Its looking for the Portal parts. So I had to do manual cleanup (Risky). I did a complete remove of MIM, this was Dev and early stages so I could afford that.

  1. Delete the FIM service and portal folders
  2. Delete the FIM service database
  3. Delete MIM references in the registry, search for the text “Service and Portal”. Including remove from the uninstall list, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

Reboot and you should be good.
