Microsoft says that Error 1706 is a Microsoft Office Error code which
indicates that required files can not be found by Setup. Since you
are trying to install new programs I feel that this is probably the
correct interpretation of your error code.

Error 1706 is usually displayed at run time when a program is installed using Install Shield. You can fix it or install the files by accessing the bios setup.. On the boot section choose the drive where the file to be installed is located to be the first one to boot. If it is on the CD drive choose Cd drive then save and exit setup.

Hi, when I start my IBM laptop I received an Unload error "1706 no valid unload source could be found for product." What does that mean and how do I repair the problem? I am using Windows XP.


as per my experince
I suspect your problem is related to the fact that you are loading
software on CD-ROMs from a DVD drive and XP is having problems
locating the drivers but the fix isn't simple.

Problems installing ms office pro 2007


hi Error 1706 is a Microsoft error that is sometimes generated when you install a Windows package from some form of removable data. Examples of removable data would be a CD-ROM or a DVD. Typically, the exact text of Error 1706 will include the phrase "no valid source could be found."
One of the usual causes of this problem is that the Windows Installer or MSI file is not residing in the root folder of the media that is found on the removable data. This does not mean that the MSI file is not somewhere on the media -- just that it is not in the folder that your system is checking. While, in most cases, the Media Package Path would be altered to create a clear path to the MSI file.

thank you
