Greetings,

I am trying to install windows mobile device center on a win 7 64 bit machine.

It proceeds with the install and at a certain point the installer says that it is installing driver updates.  Then the installer rolls back and ends without any error or message.

In the application log I find this entry:

Product: Windows Mobile Device Center Driver Update -- Installation failed.

And then this one:

Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Windows Mobile Device Center Driver Update. Product Version: 6.1.6965.0. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation. Installation success or error status: 1603.

I am at a loss.  any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

If possible upload the log file here.

Check whether windows installer service is started and set to automatic.


Run this fixit

Restart system and then try installing the software.

Thank you very much.  when I first ran that fix it I didn't think that it had worked.  But I hadn't restarted.

After putting it away for a day I came back to it this morning and I was able to install the mobile device center.,

Thank you very much.  I greatly appreciate it.
