    I have XP SP3 on my desktop. Recently I purchased QuickBooks Pro 2010 (single user). I started to install it last night and got the following message:

    Error installing d:\\qbooks\quickbooks.msi
    MSI returned 1603: Fatal error during installation.

    I tried the QuickBooks help system relating to error code 1603 and found help that applied only and exclusively to the Microsoft .NET Framework. The help screen from Intuit allowed a "contact us" question, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Does anybody know what might be causing this error given a system that works happily without problems otherwise and a brand new installation CD out of the box? Is there a possibility the CD itself is damaged or corrupt in some fashion?
