HowISolvedError2203

(ForWindows7Ultimate64bit.Shouldbethesameforotherversions)
Yes.

It'sthePainInTheA$$problem
IthinkImanagedtosolveit!
Apparently,youmusthavePermissionssetfor'SYSTEM'in2TempFolders.
Theyare:
C:\Windows\Installer

AND
C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp
Itseemsthatnothavingsettherightpermissionssetinanyofthesefolderswillnotallowmicrosoftinstallerto
readthefiles,eventhoughtheyarealreadyinside.
So,theyworkintandem:
IhadanerrorthatstatedthatitwasthefileinC:\Windows\Installerthatcouldnotberead.
Well,Icheckedandfullcontrolwasgivento'SYSTEM'intheinstallerfolder,buttheproblemwasfixedafterI
gave'SYSTEM'permissionsfortheC:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp
Howtoaddpermissions:
1.RightclickfolderPropertiesSecuritytab
2.In'Grouporusernames',youshouldhave1.Youraccountnameand2.SYSTEM
3.IfSYSTEMismissing,click'Edit...',then'Add...'
4.In'Enterobjectnamestoselect',keyin'SYSTEM'thenclickOK
5.Clickon'SYSTEM'andmakesure'FullControl'ischeckedinthepermissionswindow
Ifyoucan'tfindthefolders
You'llneedtoshowthemhiddenfolders.
1.Openanywindow...IE'MyComputer'
2.ClickOrganise>FolderandSearchOptions>View>Check'Showhiddenfiles,folders,anddrives'

So,trythisbeforeyoudoacompletereinstallwindows7.Iactuallydidacompletereinstall,onlytohavethe
sameproblemagainafter2weeks....Iwonderwhatcausesit.
Anyway,hopeIhelped.
