Please describe the exact steps you're using when this message appears.

Are you sure the XML schema is valid (contains no errors)?

When trying to install XML Schemas, I get a message box with the following
the message: "The XML expansion pack or schema file could not be installed"

this happens if I follow the following Procedure:

Open word.
Select "Tools, Templates and AddIn's" from the Menu bar.
Select "XML Schema" Tab
Select "Add Schema" Button
Navigate to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\VS
Runtime\SCHEMAS\XML Directory
Select any one of the xsd files in the above directory.
For Instance the adrotator.xsd file.

After selecting the file the message box appears.

Here is the summary information about the Version of Word that is running:
