We are receiving the dreaded error 1603 when trying to install Arch 2013. The ACA 2013 Setup Log is below. I've read a number of discussion posts on fixing it, but they all seem to point the 1603 error referencing DOTNET, DirectX or C++. This error just points to Arch 213 causing the failure. Any help on finding the problem would be appreciated!
EDIT: I've attached both log files in a zip, in case that helps.
