Windows Installer Error Messages
Windows Installer errors have an error code of 1000 or greater. The error codes numbered 1000 to 1999 are ship errors and must be authored into the Error table. The error codes numbered greater than 2000 are internal errors and do not have authored strings, but these can occur if the installation package has been incorrectly authored. For a list of reserved error codes, see Error table.
See Error Codes returned by the Windows Installer functions MsiExec.exe and InstMsi.exe.
Developers of installation packages can also test the internal consistency of their packages by using Internal Consistency Evaluators. For more information, see Internal Consistency Evaluators - ICEs.
