WriteToolboxStandardsXML returned actual error code 1603

hi swx-pros


i have a strange issue with the swx 2012 sp0 deployment via commandline.

installing the requirements via script works great, as it was working with 2011 sp4.


but when installing the solidworks.msi with a created mst i get the error:

WriteToolboxStandardsXML returned actual error code 1603 and all the copied files etc. get rolled back and the installer is failing.


when i do a manual install i can see that a new exe file is triggered regarding the toolbox setup/update.

i can see also that something with the toolbox has changed, maybe there is an additional requirement compared to swx 2011.


could you please share some light in what has changed?!


the script to install everything looks like that and used to work perfect with 2011:
