MSXML 4 SP3 hangs on message “please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements”

Secunia PSI warned me about an insecure version of MSXML 4 in my system and suggested windows update. There was no update available to solve the issue though. I removed MSXML 4 SP2 and tried to install MSXML 4 SP3 from here. Unfortunatelly the installer was hanging on calculating space requirements with the pop up “please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements”.

The only solution I found to work is to run the installer manually using a command prompt:

msiexec /package msxml.msi /qr

which runs the installer with reduced GUI.
