MSXML6 fails during VS Beta 2 install


I’ve seen a few failures with MSXML6 on machines with Beta 1 bits on it which weren’t fully cleaned up.


If you run into this, first, try using the Beta Clean up tool at:

If you’re still encountering the issue, try the following workaround:


1. cd c:\windows\system32


2. rename msvcr80.dll msvcr80.dll.old


3. Run wcu\MSXML\msxml6.msi.  It installed fine.


4. rename msvcr80.dll.old msvcr80.dll


5. Run setup.exe to install VSTS 2005.
