    AdobeColorCommonSetRGB/Error 1603 installation solution

      I wanted to share this fix I found at another Adobe forum. I was getting this error, when trying to install CS4. I run Windows XP.

      AdobeColorCommonSetRGB
      Error:
      Error 1603. Fatal error during installation.

      What was happening here is that CS4 is trying to replace the sRGB Color Space Profile.icm, which is located here:

      System32\spool\DRIVERS\COLOR\sRGB Color Space Profile.icm

      This happens, because above the file is LOCKED.

      I installed "Unlocker" http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker

      I searched for the file and unlocked it, tried the installation again and it worked with no problem. It just could not replace sRGB Color Space Profile.icm.

      Now, if someone would explain why the Adobe shortcuts weren't installed...:-) That's the only glitch I had.

      Hope this helps!

          Please check if SYSTEM account has full rights, if not grant full rights to SYSTEM account to system32 folder.

            In this reply you'll  find a solution for the problem in windows 7.

             

            As said before the error occurs when installing the file AdobeColorCommonSetRGB.

            The problem is caused by programs locking the file sRGB Color Space Profile.icm. In my case Explorer. As you cannot kill the explorer to unlock the file I found another solution to rename it:

             

            Start windows 7 in safe mode with prompt. In this mode there is no explorer to lock the file.

             

            First you need rights to rename the file

            1.     At the command prompt, input

            takeown /f c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\colors\sRGB*.icm

            2. Press Enter on the keyboard.

            3. A message will be displayed that this completed successfully.

            4. Now input icacls c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\colors\sRGB*.icm /grant (your username):f

            5. A message will be displayed that this completed successfully

            6. Now input ren c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\colors\sRGB*.icm srgbold.icm .

            Boot to your normal windows to reinstall the CS4 program. It creates a new sRGB Color Space Profile.icm.

             

            Good luck.

              Hi I was reading this old post of yours because I am installing  Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Standard onto a new computer from an old one.  When I try to download I am prompted with the following:

               

              AdobeColorCommonSetRGB

              Error:

              Error 1603. Fatal error during installation.

               

              In your post you mentioned Windows 7, I am using Windows 10.   When I typed in takeown /f c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\colors\sRGB*.icm in safe mode with command prompt it does not work.  Is there something different to type in for Windows 10?  Thank you, I would appreciate any help you can provide me.
