Windows Installer is asking for "project.msp" after uninstalling Project 2003
Posted on 2008-10-03
I recently uninstalled Project 2003 from a PC running Windows XP SP2. The uninstallation completed successfully and everything appeared to be fine until the user went to open a file in Visual Basic 6. At that point Windows Installer displayed the following message: "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter the alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'PROJECT.MSI' in the box below". I pointed the installer to the project.msi file that we have stored on a network share. At that point the installer asked for projectsp3.msp which I was also able to provide by extracting it from the Microsoft Project 2003 Service Pack 3 redistributable. Now Windows Installer is asking for project.msp and I have not been successful in finding it. More importantly, why is this happening and how can I resolve the underlying problem? I have reinstalled VB6 with no success and attempting to reinstall Project produces the same request for project.msp.
