error code 1603

Post by Real-Drums »

I am getting error code 1603 when I attempt to install Halion Sonic 2.

Recently, after a certain amount of trouble (user error), I removed all previous versions Cubase along with Halion 2 and downloaded Cubase 8

I now find myself in the simple position of having a newly installed Cubase 8 and wanting to get Halion 2 back up and running.

Steinberg kindly sent me Halion Sonic on 2 DVDs but I get the Error 1603 message almost straight away.

I've seen other posts re this error message but can't solution.

Hope someone may be able to help.

This is a windows installer error basically informing that there is not enough space on your drive for the temporary (unzipped) data folders needed for install... I suggest to clear your dustbin or download folder as some easy steps to start clearing up some room prior to install.

Good luck!

Indeed, my bad, 1603 is a general 'fatal error' message related to the Ms Installer. The fix in the above thread should address this issue for Cubase specifically. My fix addressed a separate issue (different software).

Thanks Steve for correcting me!

No thanks needed! As you point out, the error does pop up for many different reasons.
