Hello. I've downloaded the latest version of AppLocale utility from Microsoft server, and I'm unable to install it.

Windows Installer opens up with usual "Preparing to install.." message, and then a warning message box appears:
Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel.

Of course, it wouldn't be a problem if it was true; but applocale was never installed on this computer, so neither Add/Remove Programs nor msicuu.exe could help me directly.

I guess that some other program was installed with the same (something)ID, but I'm not very knowledgeable in this field; help appreciated.

I have an English Windows XP Pro SP2, with latest Windows Installer.

Problem solved itself. I've played around with msiexec repair/uninstall options, they failed BUT some of them failed with unability to find another MSI package, for Microsoft SMS sender. I've uninstalled the latter and then AppLocale installation run smoothly.

I'm amased at the fact that (apparently) 2 Microsoft products have gone into a Product Code collision. But well, the trouble is solved.
