Question

An error message Error 1607: “Failed to complete script based install” occurs at run time during the installation process.

Answer

To run most installations on Windows XP machines, you are often required to be the administrator of the computer or have some kind of administrative privileges. The reason why installations require administrative privileges is because many times installations access the Windows registry and Windows System folders. If you are trying to install software on a computer in a corporate environment, you need to contact your system administrator to give you administrative privileges on your computer.
