    I was able to install this update on my laptop without any problem; however,
    my PC will not allow it (xp Pro on both) What do I need to do? Thanx, Rick

    I have run into the same thing on my systems. On my
    Windows SBS 2003 system, I discovered that the SQL update
    had messed with my Windows Installer registration,
    causing that system to not install anything after the SQL
    update. I had to "MSIEXE.EXE /regserver" from the
    System32 directory to fix that problem. Thinking that the
    same problem may exist on my Windows XP Pro Desktop, I
    tried that fix there, but still have the same .NET
    Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 install problem there.
    Posting a general fix message would be appreciated.
