I am also getting the  1603 error trying to install the ACT 11.1 update.  I would be happy to supply my licence/activisation info if you can give me a full download of 11.1.  I've tried all the fixes listed in the knowledge base.

I solved the Problem!!!   If you are on a Windows 7 machine at the profesional or higher level you can run virtual PC XP mode and run ACT !!.1 without problems!

I am having the same error.  11.0 installs fine then when I do the update it gets the "fatal error" message.  I have manually uninstalled the program and then re-installed twice now!  I am glad I found this before I did it a third time!

I had trouble getting this to woirk.  I got the same error message.  I then went to microsofts's site and downloaded the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.  I was worried about overwriting other data, but gave it a try.  Everything worked great!!!!!

 

The SQL download went smooth and the Act! download was FAST.   I am back up and running/
