Neglected to mention that this is on the 2013 version.

 

Anyone? Hello?

Hello Willis,

 

As you have a generic 1603 without a root cause for failure, there could be quite a few potential causes, many of which are listed in these numerous forum threads

 

Can you try installing the application under a different user account with local admin rights, UAC off, and anti-virus disabled and let us know if it resolves the issue?

I've tried the alternate admin account with UAC and antivirus off, run-as-admin technique before, and just now tried it again. The log returns the same results.

A lot of the search results seem to involve problems with installing prerequisites such as C++ but this does not appear to be that.

I have not tried any registry alterations like some of those threads are recommending just yet.

EDIT: It seems some of those entail prerequisite problems too
