Getting 1603/1722 Error Codes during silent MSI Installation

Recommended Posts

Hello Paint.Net Users,


I work in IT and I've been given the task to silently install Paint.Net on the networked Computers.

So I downloaded the Installation files and closely followed the Instructions I found here: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/UnattendedInstallation.html


Now the actual Installation, while working fine on most of the machines, seems to "randomly" not work on a few of them.

The MSI Installer exits with the infamous Error Code 1603 (generic error).


To I ran the MSI in Debugging mode (attaching /L*V $Logpath to the commandline). I attached this debugging file to this post, one part of the file is especially interesting though:


Action start 10:05:24: InstallFinalize.
MSI (s) (4C:68) [10:05:24:648]: Note: 1: 2265 2:  3: -2147287035
MSI (s) (4C:68) [10:05:24:679]: Note: 1: 1722 2: _577D73A5_8502_4A32_A3DC_26C3DEF80357 3: C:\Program Files\paint.net\SetupNgen.exe 4: /install DESKTOPSHORTCUT=0 PDNUPDATING=0 SKIPCLEANUP=0 "PROGRAMSGROUP=Anwendungen" QUEUENGEN=0

CustomAction _577D73A5_8502_4A32_A3DC_26C3DEF80357 returned actual error code -532462766 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
MSI (s) (4C:68) [10:05:24:679]: Note: 1: 2262 2: Error 3: -2147287038
MSI (s) (4C:68) [10:05:24:679]: Product: paint.net -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.  Action _577D73A5_8502_4A32_A3DC_26C3DEF80357, location: C:\Program Files\paint.net\SetupNgen.exe, command: /install DESKTOPSHORTCUT=0 PDNUPDATING=0 SKIPCLEANUP=0 "PROGRAMSGROUP=Anwendungen" QUEUENGEN=0


So as you can see, the "real" error is 1722. I already tried to repackage the msi and to run installation again, with no luck.


Is there something I can do to fix this? I'm really kinda stuck atm.


Thanks for reading and cheers
