You have a Windows XP-based computer on which you apply the update for Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.0 that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
954459 MS08-069: Description of the security update for XML Core Services 6.0: November 11, 2008
After you apply this MSXML update, you upgrade the computer to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3).
When you try to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 in this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Installation of MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB954459) failed because a higher version already exists on the machine. To proceed, uninstall the higher version and then run MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB954459) Setup again.
The screen shot of this error is as follows:
If you examine the SQL Server setup log file, you find that the following error has been logged:
This package is not supported on this operating system. SkipInstallCA. Return value 3.
Fatal error during installation MainEngineThread is returning 1603
Note This issue affects all editions and releases of SQL Server 2005.
When SQL Server Setup tries to install MSXML 6.0 SP2, it detects that the version of MSXML 6.0 that is described in Knowledge Base article 954459 is already installed on the computer. Therefore, the validation process indicates that the current version of MSXML 6.0 should not be replaced. This stops the installation of both MSXML 6.0 and SQL Server 2005.
