VSE Installation failed - Error 1603


I have a  lot of issues installing VSE Patch 6 after removing VSE P4 or P5. It works on some laptop but not all the time. I get an error 1603 (sorry it's in french)

MSI (s) (24:7C) [08:46:59:052]: Windows Installer a installé le produit. Nom du produit : McAfee VirusScan Enterprise. Version du produit : 8.8.06000. Langue du produit : 3084. Fabricant : McAfee, Inc.. Réussite de l’installation ou état d’erreur : 1603.

The only way I have found to resolved the issue is to uninstall manually all McAfee product and run the MSI removal tool. I don't want to do it manually on all the laptopa that I will get this issue.

Thanks for your comment.

Re: VSE Installation failed - Error 1603

Unfortunately, 1603 just means "An error occurred". It is the return code for "Something bad happened".

To discover the details requires looking to the log files.
