SQL SERVER 2005 - MSXML6 SETUP Fail

MSXML6 is the latest MSXML product from Microsoft, and is contain with SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, .NET Framework (3.0,3.5) , Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 3.When you going to install SQL server 2005, some certain situation you can notice MSXML6 setup fail to install and all setup program will be fail. And when you going to run individual setup files, under SQL server 2005 setup folder (“\ Tools\Setup\msxml6.msi”) it will gives you following error “The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation”

MS says about this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928469







Solution;

1)Go to add remove programs and remove MSXML 6.0 Parser if available
2)Then removing few registry values you can sort out this problem.
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\
Go to above path and check product name call “MSXML 6.0 Parser” and remove all the related values and reinstall SQL server 2005 setup.

I spent hours trying to solve this problem. Thank you for summarising it here.

For anyone else who needs it, the class to delete in the registry is named "5A6FB34A0F5DAAA4FB1456990536CE44".
