Error 2203: "The installer has encountered an unexpected error..."
Error 2203: The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package occurs when installing or updating TurboTax for Windows:
If you are running antivirus, backup, or other security software you might see this error.
Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows Vista: try right-clicking the TurboTax icon and select Run as Administrator.
If that didn't work, or if you're using Windows XP, follow these steps:
- Log on to your computer with Administrator rights.
- Temporarily disable your online backup or security software.
- Install (or update) TurboTax.
- Re-enable the backup or security software you disabled in Step 2.
If the problem persists while attempting to update through TurboTax, download and install a manual update instead.
