Error 1603 (During install)

Recommended Posts

I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit and I'm trying to install Paint.net and I keep getting error 1603. I've searched for fixes for this problem, but nothing works.


It seems like I have the proper .Net framework installed... I tried installing .Net 4.6.1 separately and I get the message 'this or a newer version is already installed'.


I also tried to create the msi installs separately using the /createMsi option, but I still get the 1603 when running the install from the created msi file.


Since I tried to install paint.net multiple times, I tried deleting the paint.net registry entries between install attempts, but that didn't help.



So at this point, I don't know what to try next.  Anyone have any ideas?


Thanks in advance!

Ok, then there must be some remnants of the previous installation that weren't completely removed.


Run this utility to get rid of those remnants: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall
