Thanks Scott, I didn't realise the .msp worked differently.
It seems to be upgraded successfully now.

The patch and the installer are different beasts. The *patch* (the MSP
file) should work on any 2.5.3 install to get it up to date.

The updated 2.5.3 MSI installer will *not* install on top of 2.5.3, AFAIK, because it's in fact the same software version. The installer is updated to make sure new installs get the patched libraries, but that is not how you patch an existing install of 2.5.3. It should upgrade anything < 2.5.3.

So per my previous note, your case is "it's the exact same version". The MSI cannot work in that case.
