Windows install stops - error 1601

Recommended Posts

The Windows install stops with an error 1601.  The program asks me to try again later but it never goes beyond the initial stage.  I doublecheck under settings to see if there was a partial install but nothing shows up under UFile 2023 in apps.

Hello SSLee,

This issue may occur if one of the following conditions is true:
 The Windows Installer files are damaged or are missing;
 You install or remove a program that uses the Windows Installer Microsoft Software Installation (MSI) 
package file.
To resolve this issue, close the Windows Installer service and then re-register it in the Registry. 
This procedure ensures that the Windows Installer engine is working properly.
1. Click "Start".
2. Open the "run" box (Windows key  + R).
3. Type msiexec.exe /unreg (leave a blank space between "msiexec" and "/unreg") .
4. Click "OK".
5. In the "run" box , type msiexec /regserver (leave a blank space between "msiexec" et "/regserver").
6. Click "OK".
7. Try to install the application and see if the issue persists.
