I know all of the support links send you to this community, but it only will get you feedback from other users.

I saw someone a few days ago in the Facebook ProSeries group getting an error 1603 when trying to download install.  I told them to some here and post, but I never saw it, and they never updated their post over on FB either, so I dont know what happened.

@Orlando    who do we tag for installation issues?  Theres another recent post here with a different install error, appears completely different from this one though.

Unfortunately any error during installation in the 1600 range is most likely Microsoft Technology throwing a Microsoft Error for some Windows specific reason.  Those are tough to diagnose without getting on a machine.  Customer Support is best at diagnosing those, but there's a slim chance I can offer some suggestions if you'd prefer not to wait til Monday.

Can you post the contents of the most recently created file in C:\ProgramData\Intuit\ProSeries\Install\TY20\Logs (or email to proseries_engineering@intuit.com)? It will start with the date you ran the installer, so it will be something like this (click the Date modified column to sort by date):
