MSXML 6.0 x64 fails to install on Windows 7 x64 rc


  • Hi Alan, you must have upgraded your Win7 from a WinXP SP2 or W2K3 (even if you upgraded to vista in the middle) that has MSXML6 out of band package. In that case, the MSXML 6.0 package bundled with VS2005 will try to install it again in your Win7 but it will fail since MSXML6 is already protected by Win7. There is a workaround provided in, you can use Windows Installer CleanUp utility to uninstall the MSXML6 out of band package out of Win7, then install VS2005.
