Running msiexec failed with return code 1603: Fatal error during installation

Error: Running msiexec failed with return code 1603: Fatal error during installation.
Solution:

Step 1:Go to C:\Program Files\sapinst_instdir

Read the log file:

Error 1316. A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file c:\program files\sapinst_instdir\SMD_NW730\INSTALL\standalone\SMD\INST\vcredist_X64_2005.msi

Step 2:Here the DPC system, there is no folder name like vcredist_x64_2005.msi.

Step 3: I just rename the vcredist into vcredist_ something.

Step 4: we have successfully installed the SMD agent in BDP system.so I just copy the vcredist file and paste it in above mentioned path,

Ans also rename like vcredist_X64_2005.msi.

Step 5:Again I start my installation with old option.

Step 6: successfully completed my SMD agent installation.

Thanks & Regards,
