Error 1316 - installation failure

I had to replace my Palm Lifedrive, and bought a new E2.

In trying to install the new Desktop, I keep getting the following error message:

Error 1316. A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\palmOne.msi
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Peace, Ross

Have you uninstalled the previous version of Palm Desktop?

Do you have more than 1 profile on your computer? Sometimes multiple profiles can make things difficult is software is installed logged in as one and then you try to install/uninstall as another profile.

Are you installing Palm desktop from a disk?

Try this file from palms site -

Also, take a look at this-

I have a new Tungsten E Handheld but no installation CD. Can I download something from my computer instead?

Though Palm PDAs are considered "legacy" by their new "supporters", HP, there is a download site for your Tungsten. Note that while HP seems to have forgotten that there was an "E", and only mention the E2, the
Palm Support Palm Tungsten E2 Palm Desktop 4 1 4 and HotSync Manager... download should work... providing you are using the right OS on your computer. XP is listed in your owners manual, Vista usually works, Win7 is really dicey unless you bought one of the reconditioned/customized Tungstens that have become available over the internet lately, and win 8 might really become a deal-breaker. Good luck!

Ensure that when you reinstall the drivers you start reinstalling with phone USB not connected to computer. That is a cause for error 1316.

Try also a replacement usb cable if you have on sometimes a bad cable can give you the error.

PALM DESKTOP CRASHES in new installation.

Make sure you have the latest desktop version which was 414E When you try to reinstall the desktop software DO NOT select or allow update setting over internet. Some of the earlier versions had a problem with earlier xp versions. It is stable and works well with sp2 and sp3 versions of XP so update your windows as well.

Can Palm TX, E2 and z22 all use the same program

You might just have to upgrade the desktop software to work with the TX.  You can keep your names and addresses but you have to check with each program to see if there compatible or not since the TX uses Palm OS 5.  Most of the software available today is written for that operating system.
I don't believe Palm is even supporting the E2 anymore.

Got to the control panel, add/remove programs. Remove PalmOne if it appears there and try again.

You might want to download the latest version of the desktop from the PalmOne site.

LD and Navman SmartST with Bluetooth ?

You might need to install the NavMan T5 update (not the Palm T5 update!) before it'll work on your LifeDrive. Dunno, but try it without first.
