I have problem installing SCCM on this machine. The error code is:
File C:\Windows\ccmsetup{15714557-4FAA-4A6B-A33A-8F64D3FF658A}\client.msi installation failed. Error text: ExitCode: 1603
Action: InstallInitialize.
ErrorMessages:
Internal Error 2203. C:\Windows\Installer\inprogressinstallinfo.ipi, -2147023504

But when I map C:\Windows\Installer I can't find the file inprogressinstallinfo.ipi. Does anyone have any idea what does this error code mean -2147023504. System has Full Control over all the folders.

    Hi, @Emmanuel Flores
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    The file inprogressinstallinfo.ipi is like a temporary database created by Windows Installer during installation.
    Have we reviewed client.msi.log for more detailed messages?
    Here is an article about the similar issue, but we should find the .ipi file to use the solution:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/mem/configmgr/client-installation-error-1603
    Have we check the %systemroot%\installer directory during client installation process?

    Also examine c:\windows\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.log. If only one machine, the msiinstaller could be corrupted, can you try to install any other simple msi like 7zip?
