Exilas Posted July 17, 2010 Share Posted July 17, 2010 Hi, I'm setting up my brand new Windows 7 Home Premium PC. Installing Paint.Net 3.5.5 gives me the dread 1603 fatal error. What happens is: 1. The installer says it's creating a system restore point (it is created) 2. The installer says it's removing the previous version (though no previous version should exist, since the PC is freshly installed; possibly though this is due to previous faliures trying to install 3.5.5) 3. The installer says it's installing Paint.net 4. As soon as the installatation progress bar appears, I get the 1603 error. I browsed this forum and read a dozen or so different ways to "fix" this. Tried everything, still no luck: - sfc /scannow says my system is 100% ok - I see no orphaned registry entries about paint.net - reboot didn't solve the issue - antivirus switched off, still got 1603 error - custom installation to a different folder still fails - took the 3.5.4 version installer I had saved on my old PC, it also fails - the PdnMsiInstall.log reads: === Logging started: 18/07/2010 01:41:18 === The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2203. The arguments are: C:\Windows\Installer\537230.ipi, -2147287035, === Logging stopped: 18/07/2010 01:41:18 === Any help appreciated!
