Just a post to collect several client installation errors I encountered and how to fix them.
error: Silverlight.exe returned failure exit code 1612
This might happen when there are some remains of silverlight left in the registry, even when silverlight is not mentioned in “Programs and Features”.
Delete the silverlight key in HKLM\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\installer\products
Next, retry to client installation. It should work now.
error: Setup was unable to compile the file smsClient.mof
Solution: This error is mostly solved after reboot. Probably, the computer or server has a reboot pending.
Error: Setup was unable to compile Sql CE script file C:\Windows\CCM\StateMessageStore.sqlce.
Delete registrykey hklm\Software\Microsoft\CCMSetup
Rename c:\windows\ccm naar ccm_old
Error: Unable to start service “CCMSETUP” on machine xxx, error = 1053
Solution: check on the target client if the Background Intelligent Transfer Service is running. If not, put in on automatic.
