Zune Software Installation Failure

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Bryan - KI6ILS, Sep 26, 2008.

  1. Good morning,

    I have tried and tried to install the new version of the Zune software
    on my Windows Vista Ultimate machine. I tried installing the normal
    method, as Administrator, logging in with the Administrator account,
    even copying the install folder out of the Temp folder into the root of
    C to see if that will work. Nothing, I get the same error.

    Zune Software

    Installation Failed

    Setup must stop because the required package 'Zune' didn't install.

    Fatal error during installation.

    Error code: 0x80070643

    are you by any chance attempting to install it onto external usb har
    drive? I made that mistake at first, and had the same issue. When
    installed to my primary internal, I had no problem

    I have the same issue on a Vista Business Ultimate laptop. All of th
    Windows updates have been applied. I have made sure all unnecessar
    programs are off, including my anti-virus program. It installed and run
    fine on another identical laptop. I have even tried a work around usin
    the zunevista.exe and the zune-x86.msi files. I watch it almost complet
    the installation then just quit and roll it back off
