“Error: -1603 Fatal error during installation.”

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Here’s a PowerDVD Error which says it all. The process stopped as soon as this message appeared. It neither indicates the cause nor suggests possible solutions.

Does anybody have a solution for this one?

While installing software you should check the entire popup menu carefully. I think this problem occurred with your Windows Firewall. Windows Firewall denied to installing the expecting program. It is a common phenomenon for Windows while installing a program. So get your Windows Firewall manually off (it also covers your Antivirus currently running with your PC). Inappropriate software is also responsible for this error.

Always select an updated and fresh copy of the software. You can download or purchase a fresh copy of the software and then install it carefully keeping all the above mentioned points track. If it occurs again make sure about the compatibility of your PC’s configuration with the software.

I hope you understand it.
