Installer error 2203 & error 1603

Hi,
I need to install MySQL and Skype.
When I tried to install MySQL it gives error, "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing the package. this may indicate a problem with this package. the error code is 2203."

When tried to install Skype it gives same error and when click ok it gives error message, "Installing Skype failed: code 1603
A fatal error occurred during installation.
"
I tried fresh downloaded copies but problem not solved.

From doing a little research, your windows temporary folder may have limited permissions. Copied and pasted instructions:
  1. Click Start, type %temp% in the Start Searchbox, and then press Enter to see the default temporary folder.
  2. In the address bar (at the top of the window), click the folder to the left of Temp (it is named "Local" by default).
  3. In the folder list, right-click the Temp folder, and then select Properties.
  4. Click the Security tab, and then click Edit.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Type Everyone, and then click Check Names. "Everyone" should now be underlined.
  7. Select Full Control under Allow, and then keep clickingOK to exit all windows.

@ whudson1980 - Thank you, your fix worked like a charm. I was trying to install the last Adobe Reader XI (11.0.09) and was receiving this error.
