Fatal error during installation (1603) on StoreFront upgrade to 3.12

Today I’ve upgraded Citrix StoreFront Server from 3.9 to 3.12

as every time first I shut down all of the following services:

net stop W3SVC
net stop CitrixConfigurationReplication
net stop CitrixCredentialWallet
net stop CitrixDefaultDomainService
net stop “Citrix Subscriptions Store”
net stop “Citrix Peer Resolution Service”
net stop CitrixServiceMonitor
net stop CitrixTelemetryService

then I run CitrixStoreFront-x64.msi, reboot the server and after that I do that on the second node. Most time this goes pretty flawless.

But this time, my upgrade failed with an error:

CitrixStoreFront-x64.msi’ failed with error code 1603. Fatal error during installation”

I remember I had this already one time before, but what the hell was the solution … a short search with Google showed me:

Well I’m on StoreFront 3.9 and when I have a look into “C:\Program Files\Citrix\Receiver StoreFront\Services\ProtocolTransitionService\Citrix.DeliveryServices.ProtocolTransition.ServiceHost.exe.config” I see in some lines “Version=” – but I have 3.9, so I replace all “Version=” to “Version=”

Result: StoreFront upgrade to 3.12 is successful – All’s well that ends well.
