It was my assumption this error code 1722 is internal inside msiexec.
wpkg only ever reported the 1603 code. Still, it is confusing...

No, only one install. The rest of the messages make this clear. I got
sick of retyping them ;-). The last message indicates that 1603 is being
returned to the caller.

Yes. Both machines I tried have been rebooted numerous times since SP3,
and just to make sure I ran "msiexec /?" and the version reported was
I also added the XML from the website to install it (I initially misread
the version as 3.0.*), but the check determines SP3 is installed already
and does nothing.
