Question about Computers & Internet
My colleague says that when Error 1706 occurs during an attempt to install an MSI file from
removable media, the first thing you should try to do is check the Media
Package Pathway and determine if the pathway does in fact track to the
right folder. If it does not, scan the removable media and locate the
file where the MSI file is housed. In some cases, you may find that the
MSI file is found in a folder that is named App1. Once you have
determined where to find the right file, it is a matter of resetting the
Media Package Pathway so that the system will find and activate the MSI
file. This will require you to make some changes to the command line or
possibly make a permanent change in the registry.
It is important to note that making changes in the command line and especially in the registry are functions that someone who is familiar with writing code and general information system functions should perform.
If you are not knowledgeable about these sorts of functions, there is every possibility that the modification will not result in resolving the issue regarding the MSI file. Further, the change may create additional problems with the media package.
