  • Try to block antivirus and/or check if files are corrupted or damaged. Error 1620 has nothing to do with WEHH or VS.

  • Hi Raghu,

    Error code 1620 means the following:

    ERROR_INSTALL_PACKAGE_ INVALID 1620 This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.

    Also if you are trying to install the DTK the SDK refresh is a prerequisite.

    Hope this helps.

  • Is it a webinstaller where you need to download components? I suppose it's same problem as we face in this thread:

  • Hi Raghu -

    For WEH 6.5.3 the recommendded OS is Windows XP and the tool is VS2005. Use these instead of trying to resolve unsupported issues.

    FYI - WEH has WinCE 5.0 (I guess 5.2) core.
