My current OS is win 7 professional and installed windows 8.1 sdk. 2012 x86 redistributable is installed.

When I run the installation, I receive this error code

 

Execution of installation profess failed

 

Module name: rtools_setup_64x.exe

Application returned error code 1603

 

Any help would be appreciated.

According to

https://www.sync.com/help/installation-error-1603/

this is an security issue. This link also claims to provide help.

Another suggestion I have is to select a custom install and deselect the Remote Debugger. This was used for debugging code running on Xeon Phi coprocessors, something Intel no longer offers (and almost nobody used on Windows.)

So I tried all the suggested things. They haven't worked. Thanks for the attempt though. I tried running the module that returned the 1603 error by itself to see the specific issue with the file.

 

The rtools_setup_64x.exe returned a error that said 'Error 25541. Failed to open xml C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config

System error -2147024786

 

 

Would posting the installation log help?

Have you checked if
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config
exists?
If not, maybe the following helps:

After 10 years, support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020. We know change can be difficult, so we are here to help you with recommendations for what to do next and to answer questions about end of support.

It is really quite simple to update to Windows 10 and this might solve a lot of problems

And also use a more recent version of the product, if you can.
