Repair Error

Hi all,
I have an IS 2014 InstallScript MSI project.
Once the product is installed, then when choosing to repair by either running setup.exe or by selecting 'change'
from 'Uninstall or Change Program',
I get error:

'The new feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the install package
'My Package.msi in the box below.'

It is looking for the .msi file in a folder such as below:
%temp%\.

I see that when running setup.exe for the initial installation, a folder with a guid name
is created in the temp folder and the .msi file is placed there. Once the installation
is done this folder is removed.

Why is the Repair looking for the .msi file in this folder. Please help.

thanks,
Ash

Re: Repair Error

BTW, I am running the setup.exe from the local drive and is accessible.

Re: Repair Error

The source is usually required when doing a self-repair, normal WI behavior.
