1305782 - "Another version of this product is already installed" when installing Service Pack 1


When Installing Service Pack 1 on a computer that only has the Service Pack 0 Runtimes installed, you get the message

"Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of                                                              
this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing                                                                  
version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel."


This behavior is by design.


To Install SP1:

  1. Uninstall the Service Pack 0 Runtimes
  2. Install Service Pack 1 Runtimes
