I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express on my system at work, and I have run into a problem with the installer for the software we develop. Prior to installing VS2010 (which installs Windows Installer 4.5) it worked fine. I cannot reproduce the issue on any machines in the office that do not have VS 2010 installed. How can I uninstall the Windows Installer update? I have already uninstalled all components of Visual Studio 2010, but the 4.5 update still remains on my XP system. Any ideas?
Add/Remove Programs does not list KB942288 (Windows Installer 4.5) as a component installed on my system, this leads me to believe that the package installed by VS2010 has a different KB ID.
