Hi,

When I want to install windows office 2010 x64 it gives me error "you cannot install the 64-bit version of the office 2010 because you have 32-bit office products installed".
The 32-bit office product which is installed in my computer is "Compatibility Pack for the 2007 office system" that is KB940289. I uninstalled every piece of Microsoft Office 2007 but I can't uninstall KB940289. I tried all the 3 Microsoft fix this installer clear utility but It cannot uninstall KB940289. Unless the KB940289 is uninstalled it won't let me install Windows office 2010.
I don't want to format my computer just for removing KB940289. Do you guys have any idea how to remove it?
P.S
When I go to windows program and features for uninstalling KB940289 there is no option available for uninstalling the update. For other updates uninstall option is available but not for KB940289.

My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate X64.

I can't spea k for 64 bit or for Windows 7 at the moment but in my XP systems, the Compatibility Pack is shown as such, and in alphabetical order, in Add and Remove - in your case, Programmes and Features - listings.
