MSI Error 1603 on Adobe CS5.5 Design Premium
I was using Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition to create an installation package (64bit) of Adobe CS5.5 Design Premium and just selected the default setting.
When I tried to test the msi package on my win7 64bit machine using the following command, it does not install and got the 1603 msi error code.
msiexec /i designpremium_cs55.msi /qn /l log.txt
Anyone a solution/thought for my problem?
Attached the last 10 lines on the log file
Action start 3:17:40: InstallFinalize.
CustomAction CADeploy returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
Action ended 3:18:15: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.

Have you tried without the log switch? I know recent Adobe suites automatically log to to C:\Programfiles (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Installeres or something like that anyway. It's inside a compressed archive. That log file might give you some better indication on what's goin on.
Also, Adobe CS installers are touchy feely when it comes to which programs are running during install. There is a list on what can't run during installation in the Application manager documentation.
Personally, i made a ~300 line wrapper script for deploying Adobe CS packages. It does a lot of things, but it's primary function is to kill conflicting processes and make sure they don't run during install time by applying a local applocker policy.
