  • Hi Allen.Feinberg,

     

    Thanks for your post.

     

    The error code 0x80070643, decimal 1603 means " ERROR_INSTALL_FAILURE". It is a generic catch-all error code that means "fatal error during installation". The 1603 error code is returned when any action fails during an installation, and most commonly it indicates that one of the custom actions in the MSI failed.

     

    Please first follow this blog to locate the cause of error code 1603: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2005/08/01/446328.aspx.  When you find the detailed cause of the error, please post it back here, so that we can give you more advice on how to solve this problem.

     

    Also, would you please read the important notes and check the system requirements in the below link:

    And please carefully review the readme to be aware of any known issues with this release.
    Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Readme:

    If the above suggestions not working, would you please follow the steps below to collect the log files?

    ·         Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%).

    ·         Install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 again (with Administrator privilege).

    ·         Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool

  • Hi Andrew,

    I got the same error.

    My OS: Windows 7 Prof. 64 Bit SP1

    Installing the Visual Studio Service Pak 1 Web Installer shows the following error :
    C:\Users\Bernd\AppData\Local\Temp\Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1_10.0.40219\Dotfuscator\TMPADD6.tmp - Signature verification for file Dotfuscator\DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi (C:\Users\Bernd\AppData\Local\Temp\Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1_10.0.40219\Dotfuscator\TMPADD6.tmp) failed with error 0x80090327 (Beim Verarbeiten des Zertifikats ist ein unbekannter Fehler aufgetreten.)

    I tested the signature of the file DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi, its OK.

    When I start from ISO-File and replace the file DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.ms with another MSI-File (FSharpRedist2.0.msi) I get the same error as the thread starter :

    MSI (D:\Download\VS2010SP1dvd1\SharedManagementObjects_amd64_deu.msi) Installation failed. Msi Log: Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1_20110314_190818336-MSI_SharedManagementObjects_amd64_deu.msi.txt

    In the log Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1_20110314_190818336-MSI_SharedManagementObjects_amd64_deu.msi.txt I couldn't find any error.

    I checked the system requirements and I read the readme to be aware of any known issues. 

    I switched on the logging and started the installation again. I startet Collect.exe and collected the logfiles.

    I sent the log files to you, thank you for having a look at them.

    Greetings from Germany

  • Hi Allen.Feinberg,,

    Thanks for sending me the e-mail.

    I have checked the error log files, and find the below error message:
    MSI (s) (88:24) [14:18:36:191]: Turning off patch optimization. {FC8EA2A2-65A3-366E-A687-5B63943A800F} patch is not authored to support it.

    The error 2746 is a Windows Installer error, which means "Transform RTM.1 invalid for package C:\Windows\Installer\6e8583.msi. Expected product {product1}, found product {product2}".

    Would you please perform the steps in the link below to repair the Windows Installer in Windows 7?
    http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/vista-the-windows-installer-service-could-not-be-accessed/
    NOTE: Msizap.exe is available in Windows SDK or unofficially here: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2004/09/08/227118.aspx
    For more information about msizap.exe, see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370523.aspx

    Also, would you please try to download the ISO image format Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and use this to install the VS 2010 SP1?http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=210710

    Since this issue is caused by the Windows Installer, you can consider post this issue in the Windows 7 forum: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/category/w7itpro to resolve it.

    I hope this helps.

  • I've tried your steps and repaired windows installer and I've tried using the VS 2010 SP1 ISO and still run into the same error. Other ideas?

    Friday, March 25, 2011 5:24 PM
  • Hi Allen.Feinberg,

    If the repairing of Windows Installer service still could not resolve your problem, you might need to consider to restore your system or perform an in-place upgrade to recover it.
    For one quicker way to repair OS or restore the OS configuration to an earlier point.Here is a KB about this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936212/

    You can also submit this issue to Microsoft Connect feedback Center in formal format. Microsoft engineers will evaluate them seriously and report to Product Group.

  • Arrggh.... I had 4 developers have to REBUILD there machines to get this to work. We tried MSI ZAP, restore points, and in the end gave in and had corporate IT re-image the machine...and start from scratch.

    The install of SP1 worked. But we lost 3 days x 4 developers + 1 IT Administrator to get this too work....

    We are very careful about our install order...(we ensure we follow the best practices)...but installing SP1 REQUIRED a FULL Developer workstation rebuild.

    I'm definitely not impressed with the quality of SP1. :-/

  • Actually, "ERROR" in this case is diagnostic output. As long as one transform applies, the patch applies (if it did not, 1642 (0x8007066a) is returned).

  • Andrew, Heath (or anyone else that can help)

    I have tried the net installer to no avail and I have downloaded the ISO file and run that and I still have had no luck. I have tried to clean up %temp% but some .TMP I cannot delete even as the administrator. I have looked at numerous posts and I have not seen an error quite like mine. Here is the log snippet.

  • It appears a parent certificate is missing on your system. Right-click on DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi in the directory referenced above, select Properties, then click on the Signature tab. Do you see any error icons there? If not, double-click on the certificate in that list, then to the Certificate Chain tab. Do you see any error icons there, like a missing certificate?

  • Thank you, Heath. No there are no errors at all. The certificate is from Preemptive Solutions. When I double click the certificate to go to the Digital Signature Details and click the Certification Path the certificate status says "This certificate is good". On the General Tab of the Certificate Dialog does have a button to "Install Certificate". Should I?
     
    Thanks,
    Doug

  • No, you do not need to install the certificate. Are you connected to the Internet through a firewall or proxy? If so, you might try disabling certificate revocation checking. See http://bit.ly/hGUWlh for details (the problem description is different, but the solution may still apply).

  • So here we are now in October and this is still not corrected?  Why can't someone just put DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi some place so that we can down load this and move onDownloading one file is faster then a complete ISO.  I'm sure I was the one who broke my machine by installing Expressions 4 to see if that would be better for what I was doing.  this should not be an issue after this many months.

  • You can download the package directly from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=208995&clcid=0x409 and pass that if prompted. If you're not being prompted for source, you'll need to create a local layout of SP1 by downloading the SP1 setup application, then from a command prompt type:

    VS10sp1-KB983509.exe /createlayout "%TEMP%\VS2010SP1"

    When that completes, you can run setup.exe from that directory.

  • Not only have I lost nearly an entire day's worth of work, but I will have to work the weekend in order to catch up.  That is assuming I can get around this SP1 headache. 

    • After my VS2010 trial ended, I tried to purchase a VS2010Pro key from the "Microsoft Store"
    • Even though the Canadian dollar is worth more than the American dollar... it seems that Microsoft is entitled to charge Canadians ~$200 more for the exact same product
    • after purchasing a key, I tried to "activate" my trial version of VS2010Pro (afterall... it is already installed!)
    • didn't work
    • I downloaded the VS2010Pro ISO and tried to install the product using the key I was given
    • didn't work
    • I then spent an hour being transferred from one department to another trying to find some answers
    • finally I was able to get VS2010Pro working
    • now after downloading and trying to install the SP1 ISO I am receiving: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070643), "Fatal error during installation. "

    I really hope Heath Stewart's solution works!!

  • I ran into the error 0x80090327 for file DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi during SP1 installation. I spent almost 2 days on it and finally got SP1 installed on my system.  Here just share the history in my system.

    1. I firstly tried to install SP1 using the web install, failed and the error log indicates  error 0x80090327 , file DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi.

    2. Download the ISO image for SP1. Mount it to virtual CD and install it from the mounted CD, still the same error.

    3. Run the file from the mounted CD directly F:\Dotfuscator\DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi and it installs OK.

    4. Rerun the setup of SP1 from the CD, still the same error for  DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi.

    5. Check the digital signature of file DotfuscatorCE_5.0.2500.msi from the mounted CD and it is OK.

    6. I finally extract the ISO file to local disk and install it from local hard disk. This time, it WORKS!!!

    It seems the problem on my system is related to the virtual CD emulator software. The one I used is UltraISO. Not sure whether it will work with other emulator, but if you run into the similar problem, try to extract the ISO to local disk and run it from there.

    3. I found a link for installing VS2010 Core  installer and it was installing some 14-15 components and the installation aborted with error as "MS Vs2010 Sp1  tools for SQL Server Compact  4.0 installer for new installation. This product did not installed successfully . To run the application you must first install VS 2010 Sp1 or web deveelpoer express Sp1. "

    Please suggest the correct installable and if you know any of resolution for this problem.

    I have also verobose log files during installation with step 3 above

  • If you download the SP1 installer, open a command prompt and run it with /createlayout which will download all the packages locally. If you get prompted for an MSI, it's either an MSI with the same file name in the current directory or a package with the same name as in the prompt from your RTM media. From the logs you provide I can't say for sure.

  • Actually, everything that has been posted here did not work at all for me. The issue got quickly solved by adding the "WOW64=DWORD(0)" value to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msiserver

    This solved the problem on my x64 Win7. How MS can screw something like this up, is beyond me.
