Windows Installer error 1603
Posted on 2003-03-04
I've been trying to install an image editing program. I'm getting the following error:
failed to load dll: IS32Util, Object reference not set,
fatal error 1603 consult Windows Installer Help (msi.chm) or MSDN
I am running windows xp home, I have no trouble with other systems installing the SAME file (a different home xp system), I've cleaned out the registry of previous installation attempts, with the help of tech support. This brought no luck. I've recieved a new file from the company to use, but still the same issue. One page on the web I found about such an error suggested I rename sfc.dll to sfc.old while installing then rename it back. this did not help. other pages seem to point to the fact that this error is windows 2000 related.. but I'm not on that.
I can and have installed other programs after noticing this issue with this program. I can't figure out what to do. I paid for this program and wanted it on this hard drive to work with other applications I use
