Installation Of Nxt Pro Failed. Rolled Back. Error 1603.



I downloaded the NXT Pro install online. Placed into a folder and then ran the RoxioCreatorNXTPro_LC36AXD0R14.exe executable.


It seemed to install up to the point of the NXT Pro program and then failed, rolled back all installs.


The issue seems to hit during the install of Roxio NXT Pro and may be related to EMC_140 (not sure what that is at this point).


My PC is fairly standard. Intel i7 processor running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, ASUS mobo, Nvidia GeForce GTX 560Ti video. All updated with latest drivers as well as Windows updates. I even uninstalled the antivirus. Media Player is version 12. Tried disabling all startup programs using msconfig as suggested in knowledgebase article.


Not sure why the logs are complaining about having DirectX version 9.0c installed. According to dxdiag, current DirectX version is 11.0.


The Roxio Setup log seems to hit a snag at this point:

Taking a look at the EMC_140 log, I see a couple of things that are of interest, but not sure if they are related.

the installation directory is not the system directory - it is D:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio Creator NXT\.


That could be the problem. It still writes files to C Drive even if you install it to D drive.


Are you running a SSD Drive on C Drive?


Have a read through this 'Microsoft error 1603'

Yep. Definitely using SSD drive which is the C. Your everyday ole' magnetic platter SATA 6G/s for the D.


I am not sure if the Windows article addresses that issue. Nothing is stopping the install from using the C. Plus, according the Microsoft definition of "substitute" drive this configuration where the drives are mounted (normally) isn't a substitute. But, maybe I am wrong. It clearly isn't installing. I know that.


The drives act as a normal c drive and normal d drive. I have yet to have a problem installing any other program -- but I know that may not mean much either.

Install of Roxio Failed

tried install without Back on Track still failed

tried install as administrator instead of just an administrator account Failed

Install Roxio NXT Failed Again

fixed registry key and windows directory permissions [take ownership and open full control]

cleaned up registry with regserv to remove all junk

Review of install logs showed many registry keys, directories and some files could not be opened

with access denied

One by one I took ownership as administrators then opened permissions full some I even gave everyone

Install Roxio Creator and Burn - failed again

install Roxio Creator only - Success


if success you will see an install log but not an uninstall log and no zip file

did not work

Change registy key


change NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation from 2 to 0 didn't help reset back to 2


NOTE: I renamed the log directories so I had clean logs each try and found that a good creator install produces

a single file

Repeating that for burn produces files for burn only no new creator logs. Makes seaching logs easier


I did find a condition set

when I have Drive G turned on I get the following entry in the burn log

MSI (s) (C0:10) [15:00:26:028]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding ROOTDRIVE property. Its value is 'G:\'.

when I turn G off I get different entry (I still have a J and K drive running)

Action start 18:14:33: CostInitialize.

OK. Sorry about that, but the log files are so large they are over the 5MB limit. So... here we go. I had to break these apart into separate pieces because the log files were still a bit too large.

Just checked the Microsoft KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834484


When I run, subst, at the command prompt, nothing returns so I am thinking the substitute drive idea doesn't apply. The installation directory is not the system directory - it is D:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio Creator NXT\.


The drive is not encrypted (nor the folder). And, the system account appears to have all permissions.


I have also removed all temporary files from the temp folder and ran the install program as administrator.
