Windows Installer Error Messages

The error codes detailed in this topic are returned by the Windows Installer, and have error codes of 1000 or greater. The error codes numbered 1000 to 1999 are ship errors and must be authored into the Error table. The error codes numbered greater than 2000 are internal errors and do not have authored strings, but these can occur if the installation package has been incorrectly authored. For error codes specific to the Windows Installer functions MsiExec.exe and InstMsi.exe, see MsiExec.exe and InstMsi.exe Error Messages. For a list of reserved error codes, see Error table.
