Exchange 2007 SP2 install error 6574fdc2-40fc-405a-9554-22d1ce15686b

Never a dull moment in Exchange administration...

While attempting to upgrade my existing Exchange 2007 SP1 Mailbox/Transport Hub server to Service Pack 2, I ran into the following error during the Mailbox portion:
Unable to remove product with code 6574fdc2-40fc-405a-9554-22d1ce15686b

So I started doing Google searches and found the same error used to occur during the SP1 install. With no other leads, I figured what the heck.

1. I ran this from a command prompt:
MsiExec.exe /X {6574fdc2-40fc-405a-9554-22d1ce15686b}
to remove the Search Indexer
2. Reboot
3. Tried running the Service pack again and it ran all the way through this time without error.

So far so good.
