Error while sequencing vmware virtual vsphere client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am trying to sequence application called VMware Virtual vSphere Client application . During the monitoring phase when i click on the application source it goes for installation but after the license agreement screen it throws an error stating that "1603 error installing windows installer engine. Close all the files that are being used and then continue". Kindly advice.

  • Hello,

    Probably there is a lock on something the installer tries to replace. I would suggest to reboot the machine and try again or try to perform a native installation with a verbose-logging enabled (or enable the logging while sequencing) to verify what happens.

  • I have successfully sequenced that particular application. I'm not exactly sure which version you are looking at, but the version we have (4.0.0 Build 208111) also required the Visual J# redistributable as a client pre-requisite.  I included that install as part of the virtual package as that is not a part of our normal image. 

    I don't remember seeing that particular error message.  You might try launching the setup outside of sequencing and see if your sequencer is missing any of the prerequisites for that application.

  • Hi ,


    I  got the solution for this issue. This application requires .Net Framework 3.5 and Windows Installer 3.1 to be installed before monitoring phase. Now I am able to sequence the application.   Thank You all for your kind help.
