I am trying to install SQL Server on my machine that has windows XP. During installation system encounters an error while installing MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB954459) and SQL server installation fails. I researched on web and people have recommended using utility at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 to uninstall MSXML and then try again. Unfortunately MS has removed the utility from that link.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks a lot. It worked. Appreciate your quick response. –  CSC Aug 4 '10 at 19:37

Have you tried installing MSXML SP2 manually?

Run its installer from the SQL Server 2005 media, and you'll have a better chance of understanding and solving the error you're getting from the SQL Server setup. Or, if it "just works", SQL Server will skip that step because it'll be already installed.
