Windows 7: Another version of this product is already installed

Another version of this product is already installed

I keep receiving this error when trying to install new versions of programs I currently have installed.

I'm trying to up these programs: Windows 7 Codecs

Media

Here's a screenshot, any ideas or an update/workaround for this?

Please help.

Is this clearly an update to the program or a new version? If the latter have you tried uninstalling the Program first in Control Panel, then reboot to try installing the new version?

BTW Are you a sound engineer or other specialist in this field because WMP has almost all codecs already.

Both, but it always upgrades/updates itself during the install and never prompts me for a rebbot.

No, and I need the codec pack to experiment with playback with different file types.
