I am trying to install SolidWorks on another computer (an alternative to my Laptop) and get the error ** Install FAILED with code 1603".
Tried 3 times. What do I do now?
Message on screen says
The Installation Manager failed to register RhinoSWATLCOMu.dll
"C:\Windows\system32\regsvr32.exe" /s "C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\RhinoSWATLCOMu.dll" returned 0x3
Use the magnifying glass (top right corner of screen) and use the keywords "1603" to search for and read previous posts about this issue.
Just as a matter of interest, what version are you trying to install? professional, standard etc. Does this other computer meet the minimum requirements?
1603 is a general error.
But in your log, the main message regarding the error is
SW MESSAGE|ERROR|WIDll_SWRegistration|Failed to register register COM DLL's|C:\am\integration_tools\setupishield\SWINST\install_wi.cpp|629"
