Cant install Microsoft PowerPoint for “error 1603”

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi friends,

I am new here. Recently I bought a new Microsoft Office CD and tried to install Microsoft PowerPoint.

I faced some problems while installing Microsoft Office.

I went to start > programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft PowerPoint and it failed to open the program.

I got an information in a dialog box and it was suggesting to insert Microsoft Office disc into the CD-ROM.

I inserted the disc again and found this problem:

Error 1603 Error_Install_Failure

Now I am little bit confused about this problem.

Is it the disc problem or is it another issue?

Need help in solving this problem.

Thanks in advance.

I think it is a problem with your Windows Operating System.

You should install a new Windows Operating System. 

You should also install an updated version of Microsoft Office XP.

I think that software has many missing files.

So you should obtain full version Microsoft Office XP software.

Before installing Microsoft Office XP, you must setup and install your Windows XP.
