.MSI not found when modifying exe from control panel
I had installed a product over a network. But from Control Panel when I try to modify the installation, message is displayed that the specified msi file not found even though the network is proper and msi file is present in the specified location??
OS is Windows Vista.
This problem happens only on Vista but on XP it works fine.

This might be an authentication problem, because added security in vista, please make sure both the systems are authorized to communicate to eachother and those files/folder have the sharing permissions. Alternatively copy that .msi to your systems/system32 folder

It sounds like Sticky keys\Filter keys are activated on your machine (I always confuse the two:] ). Go to Control Panel -> Ease of Access Center -> Make my keyboard easier to use, and make sure neither Sticky keys or Filter keys are marked.
This tweak reduces the time XP waits before automatically closing any running programs when you give it the command to shutdown. Go to ‘Start’ then select ‘Run’ Type 'Regedit'and click ok Find 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\' Select 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' Right click and select 'Modify' Change the value to '1000' Click 'OK' Now select 'HungAppTimeout' Right click and select 'Modify' Change the value to '1000'
Click 'OK'Now find 'HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop' Select 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' Right click and select 'Modify'
Change the value to '1000' Click 'OK' Now find 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\' Select 'WaitToKillServiceTimeout' Right click and select 'Modify' Change the value to '1000'
Log-into your desktop screen as you usually do. Then click start followed by Control Panel. Once you are in the control panel double click Users. Now select the option to change how users log on to Windows. Options appear, I want you to select the option to enable administrative rights. Once selected click Apply followed by ok. Now shutdown your computer and power on again. Log in and now try to install your printer. Please if you need more information give me a shout.
If you used the installer, the control panel Add/Remove programs or programs and features has the uninstall.
If you used the zipfile only, simply delete the k9.exe file and the emails folder (normally in the same directory). Then modify your email accounts in your mail client. (the original setting are there, but have extra info for k9, or simply set them back up from your email providers instructions)
Click Start, click Run and type in regedit.Now, find the following key: HKey_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explor er Look in the right hand side pane and you would see dword value "NoControlPanel".Right click and modify change the value data to "0" or you can delete that dword value.

You can try logging in as administrator. As the computer starts up press 'F8' to get into the boot options and select 'Safe Mode with Networking". Click on the administrator login, the password is blank unless you set one during installation. Once in windows you can modify the user accounts in control panel.
Note: If you have never used "F8" to get to the boot menu before the timing is a bit tricky. If you see the windows logo you are too late. Try pressing "F8" several times instead of just holding it down
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'NoControlPanel' set the value to equal '1' to enable the restriction.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart for the changes to take effect.
