When the install nears completion and approaches the registration product, it generates the below message:
"An error occurred while retrieving information used to install on this computer.
The return value is 203. If the problem persists contact your technical service representative."
Cause 1: An improper setting with the Administrator's user profile on the computer.
Cause 2: System Environment Variable 'PATH' does not contain location of the Windows executables, so MSIEXEC cannot be run
Create a new user that is a member of the Administrator's group and then attempt an install under that new userid.
Ensure that 'C:\Windows\system32' is included in the System Environment Variable 'PATH'
