Okay, I'll give up. I have tried to update my installation of the platform SDK "October 2002" now for an hour or so, without any progress. Maybe someone can help.

My steps are:

1) Start the InternetExplorer;
2) Goto http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/
3) Click on "Downloads";
4) Click on "Install";

It tells me: "SDK Update requires msxml3.dll Sp2 or greater before proceeding with the installation. An earlier version of msxml3.dll has been detected on your system." and refers me to a page "XML General Downloads".

5) Go there
6) Download and install everything that looks even remotely helpful;
7) Reboot the computer;
8) Goto 1).

I have repeated that loop now several times, and it continues to ask me to upgrade my msxml3.dll. No progress. Is there a trick, have I overlooked something? -- I am on Win2000 SP4, IE 6.0 (SP1 plus various hotfixes).

Thank you,
