What application are you trying to install via advertisement?


1603 is a generic "fatal error" message for Windows Installer. Likely
some kind of permissions issue. I have seen this pushing certain
packages with SMS where the installer's internal script engine launches
under the context of the interactive user instead of the "launching
user".  You could be having a similar problem if you are trying to
install via elevated permissions.


I would turn on verbose Windows Installer logging to see if you can get
some more information.

installing from control panel I get A Fatal Error has occurred with
DoAdvertiseScript is returning: 1603 in the msi.log file.  Any ideas?
The msi works fine running it manually.
