Re: Error -6003: An error occurred when streaming... when signing the MSI file

IS2014 seems not to have any problems with the security updates. Will there be a fix for IS2012 or is the only solution not to install the Windows updates?

Error -6003

Each new release of Windows Updates is a gambling and installation should be selective with thorough testing of IS2010/IS2012. It's very possible that one of the security Updates can brake IS with re-appearance of same error -6003.

Happened again

I updated my dev box to a new machine, also running 64-bit Windows 7 and with IS 2010 (SP1 w/ Hotfix 52410) installed and after running all the Windows Updates it put update KB 3033929 on the system and I got the same error (6003: "An error occurred streaming '\MSIEng.isc' into setup.exe" again.

So, I can confirm both KB 3033929 and KB 3004394 have this problem. My system doesn't have KB 2949927 installed so I can't attest to that one causing the problem (but have no doubt that it does and will keep an eye out for it).

Again, removing the KB and rebooting the system fixes the issue.

I REALLY wish InstallShield would update the error 6003 page with this information. Smiley Sad

Another update not previously listed causing the same error?

I just got back from vacation and my dev box is throwing the error again [64-bit Windows 7 and with IS 2010 (SP1 w/ Hotfix 52410) installed]. Sure enough, 50 new updates were applied by IT while I was gone. Unfortunately, I don't see any of the previously mentioned KB updates (KB 3033929 or KB 3004394 or KB 2949927) applied on my system so this must be a new one. Anyone know which one it is so I can save myself some time?

4th KB article to break IS 2010 on Win7

In case anyone else is tracking this issue...

The latest KB that breaks IS 2010 is KB 3040272. Uninstalling that KB restored my ability to build projects using IS 2010.

After comparing the files updated by the four MS hotfixes that are causing these issues, the four files below are common to all the updates (in System32 and SysWow64). The file versions listed are the versions of the files after I uninstall the updates (last known working version). I don't know for a fact that the updating of these files is what is breaking IS 2010 (this is just a guess).



  • crypt32.dll (6.1.7601.18277)
  • cryptnet.dll (6.1.7601.18205)
  • cryptsvc.dll (6.1.7601.18205)
  • wintrust.dll (6.1.7601.18205)

I can confirm that these updates breaks also IS2012

I MAY have a fix

I've tried this on my dev box (Win7 x64) and it seems to be working so far: Copy the last known good version of the problem DLLs (see my previous post) to the "System" folder located under the InstallShield 2010 installation location (ex: "C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2010\System"). This loads the libraries "side-by-side" in the local InstallShield 2010 install path and seems to be working for me (even after applying the MS KBs known to cause the issue).

Unfortunately, the trick that uses side by side old dll version does not work with InstallShield 2008.

Here are all Windows Updates I have removed to enable MSI signing by InstallShield (error 6003):
KB3033929
KB3004394
KB3040272
KB3172605
KB4015549
KB4012215

That works for me :rolleyes:

You can easily uninstall any KB using this command:
wusa /uninstall /kb:4012215
