I was trying to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 on my Windows 7 pc. When I tried to install it, it tells me that I have a newer version installed on my pc. So, I checked that Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 installed some sql server 2008 tools for me.

I decided to uninstall SharePoint 2010(which I wasn't using) and then tried to install MS SQL Server 2005 again. This threw me the following exception:

Error 1603 installing microsoft sql server setup support files

Searching on Google I found this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916760 but it's not my case actually.

Any help will be appreciated. I really need this to continue working.
