Hello ;
Just completed an in place upgrade from XP Home to Xp Pro and everthing went well except for a few items which one I can hope someone can help me here.
This is the msg I get at start up of Xp;
MsiInstaller Product: PhotoGallery -- Error 1706.No valid source could be found for product
PhotoGallery. The Windows Installer cannot continue.

I actually cannot find this on the XP cd or on my system, I really don't need this program and hope it would be safe to delete this this process but I need some help on that issue of how to stop this from taking place.

You can use msizap.exe to clean out any msi reference for the product, this will stop the self-healing from occur.

I'm getting the same sort of error but I cannot find any duplication of it doing a Google or Ask search.

Document Viewer
Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product Document Viewer. The Windows Installer cannot continue.

We have an HP Photosmart All in One Printer which software installed HP Document Viewer. I never use it but I'm assuming this is what it is referring to. I have to go to Task Manager to get the error message to go away, but it comes up everytime I log in. During this I also get the following error message :

Earthlink Protection Control Center
Run Time Error '_2147024703(800700c1)': Automation Error
%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Don't know what either of these mean.
