View Full Version : Error 1706, Windows Installer, endlessly running

11-18-2005, 01:23 PM
This problem began this morning. Everytime that I run IS 11, the stupid Windows Installer dialog shows up looking for my installation CD. I have inserted the CD and waited, and waited, and waited for this dialog to do its work. It finally wants to reboot the machine. But WAIT, it wants to run again, again, and again.... This has become a VERY FRUSTRATING problem since I can't get anything done.

I have noticed that canceling the dialog returns the error message:

"Error 1706.No valid source could be found for product InstallShield 11."

Can someone tell me how to stop this madness!
