Act 2013 installation issue 1603 error

Good evening, My beta version had run out so I had to install the gold version. Per answer ID 28078 I have manually removed all traces of Act Beta 2013 and Act 2012. I have used a registry cleaner to remove all registry traces and removed MSSQL10_50.Act7.


I am still getting a 1603 error and roll back at updating compenent registration. I am starting the program as an administrator so now i am out of idea's. I need to get this back for mnday if possible.


thank you for the help.


P.S Win 7/32 with all latest patches and AVG2012 temporaily disabled.

1603 errors can occur if you are trying to install the software from a network drive.  There are several other reasons, many of which are described in this KB article:
