  • error code 127 and 1603

    I Have been trying to up date from free version
    for the past four days. ( vista pro op)

    Each time I get
    1)Toolnit failed
    2)Error code 117 ( encountered error) (3aced2a)
    3) Error 1603
    Fatal error during installation

    4)When I next start the computer the procedure starts again.

    Any advice please????

    I have tried disabeling AVG....

    The error 1603 may point to some corruption/permission/damage in the OS this may only be fixed by starting clean. OS clean-up/format. See for example here:

    I would personally try to restore the OS to a restore point previous to any attempt of installing ZA. Then I would first fully remove the old version (including using the ZA removal tool - clean.exe), reboot, turn on VISTA firewall, re-download the ZAfree installer and try again.

    If the above fails then I am not sure what to suggest other than OS reinstall or shifting to a firewall that works on the system and most of all is fully up-to-date.
