Hello - were you ever able to figure out this problem? I am running into a similar issue here. Any advice would be appreciated...

As you are probably aware, advertisment of the product does not copy all files to the local machine. This is why 1706, a failed request for source files, occurs. What may be an alternative is to copy the source files to a local directory. If you have built an install with a compressed setup.exe, you may want to look at the Cache Installation panel in the release wizard or in the releases view.

The easiest way i have found to remedy this problem is to use Installshield Tuner to build a transform file. This will allow you to specify other data sources. We currently deploy our apps using Active Directory and Group Policy and I must specify our 4 network distrobution points in the transform...after that nefer any problems.
