ACT! premium 2009 installation error i am currently running XP

I am running peachtree accounting and attempting to install ACT Premium. During the installation i get this ERROR-1603 Fatal error during installation. Constult windows installation help (msi.chm) or MSDN for more information. I googled the 1st otion but there were so called free solutions to scan and fix but it only scaned then the bread crumbs led me to a sight that wanted to sell you the full program to fix this problem. Can any one assist?

Hi

 

The 1603 error has been on this forum before and the link still exists -

Not sure if this will help you but worth a try.

 

Good luck

Re: ACT! premium 2009 installation error i am currently running XP

1603 Errors almost always occurs as a result of a faulty extraction of the downloadable media or a conflict with existing install. If you downloaded your copy of act, try uninstalling, extracting it again, then installing. If your have a hard copy then you may want to contact support and get it in a downloadable format. Lastly, if it's as a result of a conflict from a previous version then you could try running the uninstaller found, but if that doesn't fix it then callling support would be your best option.

Hi I have also had serveral install issues with ACT.  I solved each and every one of them by first running Windows Update, getting all the updates and trying again
