Windows Installer Error 1706
This is short for Windows Installer Error 1706, which means “no valid
source could be found for product.”
There are a few reasons why this
could occur. It could be as simple as the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM is having
trouble reading your disk and may need to be cleaned. It could be as
serious as problems with the Registry and/or the Windows Installer
Check to make sure that the CD/DVD you’re installing/updating from is
the original one and that both the disk and the drive are clean. If that
is the case, then you may have a more serious problem.
Error 1706 has a
number of more serious potential causes
A file that is required by the application
could have somehow got deleted which leads to the 1706 error. This may
have occurred if you installed a different program and it overwrote the
existing file of that other application. To find out what the filename
that’s missing from the application, you can analyze your logs to see
which file path is labeled as unavailable.
Once you have found out the name of the file,
you can try your luck and find the specific file by using the Search
feature of windows which is located under the start menu. If nothing
comes up in the search results, you may have to reinstall the program.
registry cleaner and PC
Optimizer like RegCure, can sort through the Registry and
determine if there is a conflict or if
the file is improperly cached. If that’s the case, then it should
be able to fix this error. We recommend the free Regcure scanner to see
if your registry has errors or mis-configuration, possibly leading to
the Error 1706 message on your PC.
