Hi Guys

I have just spend a couple of days trying to install TMSPE into our lab. But i kept getting an error during the install " TMSPE Setup Wizard ended Prematurely.

After going though the log i found the error message "Installation success or error status: 1603" which is actually a windows error message.

After trying many times with different users and passwords i can now advise that the issue was that the password i was using for my sa user was not compatible with the installer. I was using Today!@# as my sa password and after changing this to Today123 the install succeded with no issues at all.

The reason for this post is hopefully going to save you some time when doign this install if you come across this error message.

Stars added, thank you Lindt for great input

Also if I can add my 2 cents. When you creating database before installing TMSPE, you need to make sure that tmspe is always in small letters. If you use capital letter install will pass initial stage, but will fail on the second stage when try to create database itself.

Hi Michael,

Forum Question:  Anyone know how I can give lindtg777 credit for his post?  I'm following the guide below but I do not see the stars on the left, just the average rating.

The platform allows for answers to be rated but not questions.  This is why you couldn't rate Lindt's helpful tip in the initial post.    His subsequent answer in this thread can be rated.
