Hello guys,

I want to install Sony Vegas 11 for the editing of some videos. I tried to install it but all the time I got an error. The screenshot of the error is attached below:

 Error:

ERROR:1603 occurred during installation Module C:\Program Files(x86)\sony\Shared Plug-Ins\Audio_x64\sfppack1_x64.dll failed to resister.HRESULT-2147010895.Contact your support personnel. 

I uninstalled the Visual C++ 2005 version and replaced it with the 2010 version but still the same error persisted.

I have tried my best but now I am at my wits end.

If anybody has any suggestions regarding my query, please help

Waiting for your response

Regards

Jacob

Hello Jacob,

Error 1603 is a common error with Sony Vegas. It is causing because of mainly two things

  1. The folder you are trying to install is encrypted
  2. Otherwise your SYSTEM has no control over the installation path.

It is reported by many other software's like windows installer package and many others. The experts suggest lots of solution for it. Here I note few :

  • Install this software to another drive. Install the software by giving another path, which is small ( like 'D:\' )
  • Or another way is to grant permission to the SYSTEM account, which is only applicable in windows XP and 2000. Not applicable in Windows 7. For this right click on the drive which you try to install and go to security or file sharing tab . And go to users and groups click system and click ADD button. In permission box check full control and ALLOW in Advance. Its done. This will solve your problem

I will only suggest the first option which is and applicable in all OS.

Hope you get the answer, have a nice day.
