Affects Version/s: PUP 3.4.3
Fix Version/s: None
A simple set of repro steps is as follows:
- Install PE 3.2.0
- Try to install PE 3.1.2
The PE 3.1.2 installer will successfully install PE 3.2.0, and during the install of PE 3.1.2 will fail with a generic MSI installation code:
ERROR_INSTALL_FAILURE 1603 Fatal error during installation
If run through the UI, you can see that files are copied correctly, and a start of the pe-puppet / puppet service will be triggered. Unfortunately it appears that the installer believes that the service has failed to start.
The relevant portion of the log starts at line 160328 of the attached log file.
If the PE 3.1.2 installer is started again, the install completes and the service is started.
Complete log is attached as a zip.
