How can I remove databases that are not completely built on Windows

If an mkdbase fails, typically for permission issues on Windows, you may find that an rmdbase fails also.

This issue may lead to space being taken from the Windows file system and the database name used unable to be referenced by a further mkdbase.

To recover this first use Windows Explorer with administrator rights to remove the folder, named as used in the failing mkdbase, and then run the following from a Windows Command Prompt. 

realreg –d d dbasename – where dbasename is the name of your database.
This will remove the Reality internal information that was part setup by mkdbase.
