Are you upgrading these programs, or doing a first-time or clean install
of them?
Are you getting error 1603 with BOTH installations?

If upgrading from older versions, uninstall the older version first,
reboot, clean out your Temp folder, then try a clean install of the
program.

One of many suggestions on the Skype forums is:

Click Start> Run, type the following and click OK:
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\vbscript.dll

Click Start> Run, type the following and click OK:
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\jscript.dll


The fix described here is only for a particular set of circumstances:

I suggest you use their forums and support:
