Error while trying to install Exchange 2007 SP3

Hi:

This message pops up when I try to install Exchange 2007 SP3:

"Installation program generated an error when performing action "Install". You can't resume installation if you run the action "BuildtoBuildUpgrade" (My translation may be imperfect)

I just run the SP3 setup program.

What's giong on here?

Thanks.

Do you have watermark in another role? Rename the watermark key to something else and try again

Sorry, forgot to tell before.

I made the changes you said to the registry keys, and used the command "setup.com /m:install /r:mb" in the SP3 directory. Then it worked.

The comment where this command was posted was deleted.

Thank you all for your comments. They have been very helpful.
