    Clarify me a little .... u reinstalled the windows, and the issue remained ?! Did u do a clean reinstall or just overimposed on the previews windows install ?! (do a clean install, so there will be no previews damaged settings... )

    if u did a clean install and u still get the error check if u;re comp. is infected with viruses and other damaging software (someone could take controll on u;re windows user settings, and make u;re accound a non administrative one for example ...)

Microsoft windows xp home edition service pack 2 error 1603


Hello corejmwilli,

The 1603 error code your getting, is probably a conflick within the .net versions. I would go to remove programs and software in control panel, and delete any versions of .net that are there, and then you can download this one which is the most current. HERE. That should solve your provblem.

Good Luck

Error 1935


The first step is to make sure ou have all of the latest windows updates. This problem could also possibly cause the windows updates not to install correctly as well, so let me know if you get an error when trying to install the updates. If not, make sure to reboot after the updates are installed then try to re-install the surpac software.

Let me know if this fixes the issue or not.

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account
