Q: When running setup, the following error occurs at run time: Error -1603: Fatal error during installation.

Cause: This error message is displayed by the Microsoft Windows Installer engine, and is a general error code that indicates a problem occurred during the installation. The following is a non-exhaustive list of known causes for this error:

Resolution: The Microsoft Windows Installer Service is not installed correctly.

To ensure that the Windows Installer service is properly installed and configured, it is recommended that users install the file InstmsiA.exe on Windows 95/98/Me or InstmsiW.exe on Win NT systems. These files an be found at by searching for the filenames at click here.

Resolution: The Windows Temp folders are full.

Empty all temporary folders. The specific temporary folders for a machine can be determined by accessing the DOS prompt and typing set. Note the values listed for TEMP and TMP, and delete all files in those locations.

Resolution: Short file name creation is disabled on the target machine.

Ensure short file name creation is enabled on the target machine. You can check to ensure that the target machine does not have short file name creation disabled by navigating to the following registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

Check to ensure the value "NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation" is equal to 0. This indicates that short file name creation is enabled. A value of 1 indicates that this functionality is disabled. You should change the value to 0.

Resolution: The setup was corrupted after installation, and therefore fails with this error during uninstallation.

Ensure no other applications, including utilities such as virus scanners, are running in the background. Close all running applications and utilities, and launch the InstallShield Developer setup again.

If this error occurs during uninstallation, use the Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp utility to uninstall the setup. This utility is available with the Windows Installer SDK, which can be downloaded at the link below: Download Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp HTML: click here

Once the setup has been successfully uninstalled, you can then debug the project to determine what caused the original error.

Resolution: A general error occurred during the installation.

As this is a general error code, a more specific error may have occurred earlier in the installation process. Verbosely logging the installation can provide further information about the error's cause. Identifying the original error that occurred can help narrow down to the specific source of the problem. Logging an installation is done by calling the setup program Setup.exe with the command line parameters Setup.exe -verbose"c:\LogFile.txt". By sending the log file we are able to better determining the cause of the problem.
