Error 2203



When I try to install DevPartner Studio or BoundsChecker, the installation fails with Internal Error 2203.  I generated an installer log, but the error does not show up in the log file, and the install rolls back.  What causes this error, and how can I resolve it?


This can happen for several reasons, either the .msi file you are running is marked read-only, or the permissions for the folders the installer needs to access do not give SYSTEM full access.

To fix this, make sure that the .MSI file can be modified, and that the temp directory used by the installer (normally c:\temp\Instal) grants full privileges to the SYSTEM account. It may also be necessary to grant SYSTEM full privileges in \WINNT\Installer and in the Visual Studio directories.
