I have the famous 1603 error.

[06/18/06,21:00:53] Windows Communication Foundation Beta 2: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Windows Communication Foundation Beta 2. MSI returned error code 1603
[06/18/06,21:01:10] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates WinFX Runtime Components 3.0 Beta 2 was not attempted to be installed.

I followed all suggestion found on internet: unistalling all previous versions with microsoft tool, check for infocard, disabling antivirus, etc ...

Here is the call stack found in a dd_*.txt file and in the Application's Event

=== Verbose logging started: 18.06.2006 21:00:49 Calling process: C:\WINDOWS\WinFX\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\ServiceModelReg.exe ===

Above error means:

we are trying to register .svc extension in IIS meta base,we are not able to register,so setup was failed.

In some cases,reinstalling IIS solved this problem,If you have option to reinstall IIS,you can try this option

Are you admin on this machine ,you are able to browse IIS applications from IIS manager

Thank you Madhu,

reinstalling IIS solved my problem!

It's anyway funny how also with these new technologies, we still cannot get rid of COM hell, something nowdays is considered "legacy stuff" by Microsoft too...

Try to follow steps described in this blog:

http://developers.de/blogs/damir_dobric/archive/2006/06/15/460.aspx

This solved my problem of installation on WINFX beta2.

abstract from the blog:

you can solve if you remove the Info Card Service. I find always amazing when some component which I even currently do not need makes my live hard. The easiest way to do that is to use the SC.exe (the command line program for communicating with the

NT Service Controller and services).

Just execute following line in the command line console: sc delete "infocard service"
