You can use your SN and the product key, but I would install Freestyle as trial and activate it later.
Tried to install using the free trial and got the same error code. The log says the exact same thing as the log when I tried to install using the DVD. Any other tips?
Just to see if the error 1603 is caused by installing Freestyle prerequisites, could you try the following?
On the root of the Freestyle installation media, x86\support folder contains Freestyle prerequisites, please try installing them one by one and if you receive an error please take a screen shot and attach to the thread.
To install .NET, double click on
To install DirectX, double click on
To install Microsoft XML parser, double click on
To install MS Visual C++ 2008 redistributable, double click on
All of them installed with no problem. I re-started the computer and tried to install Freestyle and it gives me the same message with the same log info as before.
Thanks for the update and sorry for the delayed reply I thought I had replied to you earlier.
Now we know that the error is not related to installing prerequisites.
Can you try installing Freestyle in Windows diagnostic startup mode?
You can do so by going to the Start menu > Run > type msconfig in the open dialog box and click Ok. Now on the General tab of the System Configuration Utility box, select the Diagnostic Startup options and click OK. When prompted restart Windows and try installing Freestyle.
