    installing FM8 on windows 8- how to deal with a 1603 error ?

    david.r.bell

      Hi all

      i have run FM8 on Windows 7 for a long time, but upgraded to Win 8.

       

      I have installed CS4, but now that I am attempting to install FM8, i have a problem. The install goes almost all the way to the end; the installer mentions something about updating registry entries, but this goes by in a flash. Then the install rolls everything back. It says there is a 1603 error.

       

      Win compatibility modes don't seem to help, nor does installing from hard disk. I have switched off all the startup items, changed permissions on spool/drivers, but i still get the same error.

       

      can anyone help ?

      many thanks in advance
