    error 1603 during installation

    Pasquale Franciosa
      I'm installing SW2008 sp2 on OS win XP64bit from the DVD.
      I got the attached error. The same occurs if I try to download and install the update SP5 from solidworks network.
      Can someone help me, please?
      Thanks in advance.

          Uninstall the following programs:
          Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0
          Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
          Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications (VSTA)

          This can generally be uninstalled using Add/Remove Programs. If it doesn't work, you can use the Microsoft Uninstaller utility
          (msicuu2.exe) - it can be downloaded from Microsoft.

          Once these files have been removed, reboot the computer and install SolidWorks (Using the Installation Manager - this will re-install the aforementioned programs.)
