    Why does the client not want Windows Live Messenger?
    There is a potential solution for the 1603 error here:
    http://messenger.msn.com/Help/
    "Download and Installation

    How do I fix the error "MSN Messenger setup failed with error code '1603'"
    during setup?

    When running MSN Messenger Setup, you may encounter a "1603" error or you may
    get the following error message instead.
    An error occurred during the installation of assembly
    "Microsoft.Windows.Networking.RtcDll, type="win32", version="5.2.2.1",
    publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df", processorAchitecture="x86"". Please refer to
    Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x80070002.
    To resolve the situation:
    Turn off any spyware detection programs.
    If you have the Microsoft® Windows® AntiSpyware (Beta) installed, right-click
    the Windows AntiSpyware icon in the taskbar notification area and click
    "Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware". To turn off non-Microsoft anti-spyware
    programs, refer to instructions provided by the manufacturer.
    Run MSN Messenger Setup again.
    If this does not resolve the problem, you may not have enough free disk space.
    The Disk Cleanup tool calculates how to safely free up disk space on your hard
    disk.
    To make some disk space available:

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    Click Performance and Maintenance.
    Click Free up space on your hard disk.
    The Disk Cleanup dialog box appears.
    On the Disk Cleanup tab, select the following check boxes:
    Downloaded Program Files
    Temporary Internet Files
    Temporary Files
    Temporary Offline Files
    Offline Files
    Click OK to delete the files from these locations.
    When prompted, click Yes start the disk cleanup."
