Dear Experts:

While installing MS SQL Server 2005, I got the following warning:
An installation package for the product MSXML 6.0 Parser cannot be found.
Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'msxml6.msi'.

Below is the screen print of where I got the warning.

Thanks!

1. Please remove any partially installed or previously installed components and try installing again. (try ADD/Remove programs, etc.)
2. Make sure the installer in a local disk and not in a network share.

Have you tried uninstalling completely and again restalling the SQL Server 2005. If not, please do it. It should help. Please revert in case of any queries.
