Hi all,

I am getting the dreaded Error 1603 when attempting to install CS4 Photoshop on my new computer.

The error:

Error 1603. Fatal error during installation. (AdobeColorCommonSetRGB)

I have attempted to follow the instructions here: Error 1603: A fatal error occurred during Adobe Creative Suite installation

But, when I get to steps 5 and 6, things aren't matching up.

Image 1 shows what I see after step 4 (there is no owner "tab").  So instead, I select "change" link just right of Owner: TrustedInstaller

Image 2 shows what I see after selecting "change" link just right of Owner: TrustedInstaller

I have no idea where to go from here.

I am windows 10 and am the ONLY user on the computer with Admin Privileges.

Please help!

Thanks.

If anyone is having the 1603 RGB Error and Adobe's solution​ doesn't work, as it didn't for me, I asked the same question to Microsoft and they were able to help me out.

Problem is now fixed by following I did below:  (original Microsoft forum thread can be found here)

Step 1:

  • Press Windows+R key from your keyboard. This will open the run command.
  • Now type services.msc and hit enter.
  • Double-click the service named Windows Installer.
  • Ensure that the value of the Startup Type field is set to Manual.
  • Click OK to confirm the setting.
  • Try reinstalling your Adobe application.

Step 2

  • Press Windows+R key from your keyboard. This will open the run command.
  • Now type "msiexec /unreg" and hit enter.
  • Again press Windows+R key from your keyboard.
  • In the Open box, type "msiexec /regserver" and then press Enter.
  • Try reinstalling your Adobe application.

Hope that helps!

Problem is back.  I had to uninstall Illustrator for an issue and can't re-install due to 1603 error.
