Cannot Uninstall MSXML 6.0 Parser (KB933579) from Add/Remove Programs

I'm trying to uninstall the MSXML 6.0 Parser from my Add/Remove programs
screen, and I cannot because it says it cannot access the msxml6.msi
file. I have downloaded this file from Microsoft, but even when I point
to it, it will not install. If I try to run this file all by itself, it
won't run because it says: Installation of MSXML 6.0 Parser failed
because a higher version already exists on the machine. To proceed,
uninstall the higher version and then run the setup again. Can anyone
let me know if there is another way to uninstall this program?

It would be relevant to know why are you trying to do this
and certainly be relevant to know what OS you are doing this to.

Sounds like you already have an update involving the modules
that would install. Find out what modules are involved,
what versions of them that you already have and how you got them.
Then you will know what steps to take to undo whatever that was.


Good luck

Re: Cannot Uninstall MSXML 6.0 Parser (KB933579) from Add/Remove Programs

OS: Windows XP Pro
Reason: I Initially tried to install SQL Express 2008 on my desktop,
but I kept getting a "SQL Express 2008 incompatible with SQL Express
2005" error message (I thought both could be running on 1 machine). So,
I uninstalled 2005. However, the SQL Server for 2008 would install, but
Management Studio kept giving an error when trying to install Windows
Powershell 1.0, saying I already had a version installed and to remove
that version first. I could not see a previous version in the
Add/Remove programs screen (showing updates). Finally, I gave up on
2008 - uninstalled everything - and tried to reinstall 2005, only to
have an error when it would try to install the MSXML 6.0. I thought if
I could uninstall what I had, the process would work better.

Use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to uninstall MSXML 6.0
Parser.

You can find it 'here' (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301).
