I got the 1603 error on a client PC (Win8.1) while deploying "SEP 12.1.2015.2015 - English", through a remote push on SEP Manager.
Tryed some of the above suggestion that seemed to apply to my case but none solved my problem.
Any additional suggestion would be appreciated.
I followed the steps in the article but they didn't work. However, I did find a solution. Here it is:
After 2 days, I finally made Skype and Facebook VideoCall both work on my Windows8 Dell computer.
So many things to try and I thought I had uninstalled McAfee software that was free with my computer many months ago.
But nooooo...it turns out you also have to go and get their special uninstall the rest of it tool! It's called the McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool and I give their site link right here to make it easier than the Dumb as a Rock process I completed. Did I mention that it took 2 days to find this simple fix?
Thanks, Brellie Brellie for letting me practice with you and make sure everything worked!
