Unable to Remove Active Directory Connector

I'm trying to remove the Active Directory Connector from an Exchange 2000 server in a Native Mode environment.  It's telling me that setup was unable to find the installation files.  When I go and browse to the location of the ADC.exe file, it tells me that the version of the installation program is older than the one previously used.  See the screen shot below ADC-uninstall-error.doc.  

In troubleshooting so far, I went into ADSIEdit and removed the entry from Active Directory Connections under Services in the Configuration container.

ADC was updated with service packs. Therefore you will need to download (if you don't already have it) the service pack that the server was on. It may even be Exchange 2003 ADC, you may have to go through a few to find the one.

The other option would be to download Exchange 2003 SP2, use that to update the ADC, then remove it.

Thanks Simon.  I had the sp3 version in a folder on the server.  Installing and overwriting the existing files allowed me to then uninstall.
