The installation of component Quest SQL Optimizer for Oracle has failed with the following error: 1603


#1

I tried installing the new Toad 10.5 commercial version (I already have a
licensed 10.0 installed and the Toad Beta 10.5 installed) and got this error:

The installation of component Quest SQL Optimizer for Oracle has failed with the
following error:

1603

Select “Cancel” to cease installing, ‘Retry’ to attempt to install this product
again, or ‘Ignore’ to conitnue installing any other products.

I hit Cancel. The Installation Messages box reads:

Critical Errors :

Quest SQL Optimizer for Oracle : 1603

I downloaded and tried to install both Toad Development Suite for Oracle 10.5
Commercial.exe and Toad for Oracle 10.5 Commercial.exe – both failed with
this error.

What does this error code signify?

Copy-paste:

This error message indicates that the VBScript engine is not currently
registered on the machine where the install/uninstall is taking place.

The VBScript engine can be quickly registered by following these steps:

  1. Run Command Prompt as administrator:
    Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories
    Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator
  1. Run the following command:
    Since you are using 64-bit version of Windows, type cd %windir%
    \syswow64
    into the Command Prompt and hit Enter
  2. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

If the above solution does not work, try the below alternative steps:

  1. Run Command Prompt as administrator:
    Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories
    Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator

  2. Type the following command in the prompt: reg delete
    “HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}”
    /f
    , then hit Enter.

  3. Next, you must also type the following command:
    c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32
    vbscript.dll
    , then hit Enter.

Thanks,
Cliff

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about 1603’s with SQL
Optimizer. Unfortunately, we don’t produce that product. Please report
this to Quest Support.

1603 is a general MSI installer failure, a quick Google search will tell you
more about it… http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834484
