Fixing Error “Process exited with code 1633” When Installing SyncToy

April 9th, 2013 - Posted by Steve Marks to Software, Web Development.

SyncToy from Microsoft is a great little program to ensure that two folders are kept in sync. I personally use it to ensure local folders and networked folders are kept up to date.

Whilst recently installing it on a new PC however, I came across the following error in the logs:

Process exited with code 1633

The Solution

The problem turned out to be that I had downloaded and installed the wrong version. On the downloads page there are two versions of SyncToy available; a x64 version and a x86 version.

After trying the other, correct package, it installed and ran immediately as expected.
