MSI Installation Failure (1603)

Postby Chris.Allen » Fri Jun 26, 2009 1:03 pm

1603 is a generic error but we are getting a lot of these lately so you can safely assume if you're getting this with version 5 the following is a reliable workaround:

If you have a user who you know has never ran Visual Studio xxxx (and if you are unsure and you are able- create one), log in and install ANTS from there. You'll still need admin rights.

This only works for one of the products though. We will fix this soon in the next build...

MSI Installation Failure (1603)

So when is the next build going to be released? I'm trying to test drive the product and I can't get it to install.

ResetAddin hanging

Postby commongenius » Wed Jul 08, 2009 7:47 pm

When I tried to install, the ResetAddin task for VS 2005 ran for over 45 minutes before I was finally forced to shut it down so I could get on with my work. When I did that the installation failed with 1603. Is this the program you will be fixing in the next release, and can you please tell me when I can expect that to be?

We will release version 5.1 on Tuesday 14th July. This will fix the current installation problems. Sorry for the delay.

Yes, 1603 is actually a generic error (5.1 only solves one issue but it was occuring very frequently). Can you get hold of the install log file. Click on the very top left corner of the installer and the menu will give you acces to the log file. If there are grumblings about VBScript, try this:

Running CMD.exe as Administrator:

cd %windir%\\System32

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

or this, on x64:

cd to C:\\windows\\syswow64

Type- regsvr32 vbscript.dll, then hit enter.

I think its because vbscript.dll is not registered by default on some machines (security reasons I think). There is plenty of info in googlespace on this. e.g.:

Hate to bring back an old thread, but I'm running into this problem as well and I've tried the fix noted here.

I'm running Server 2008 R2 x64

I narrowed down the performance profiler MSI and tried to install it with logging, heres a snippet of what's in it..
