I'm having a Windows installer problem. the window states "Error 1706 ! installer could not find source for TrayApp. I'm not that computer literate but i found the start of the problem in Event viewer with the binary codes of the error.The OS was pre-installed on my PC but the recovery HDD seems to be of no help. I'm thinking of going to Recovery mode to before the problem started but I was wondering if someone had a better solution.I can cancel the error message and my PC works just fine but canceling it every time i boot up is getting a little annoying. I'm hoping ther is an expert out there who can decipher the event log binary and tellme what to do best. Thanking you in advance

My guessing is that a repair is triggered and the original source (installation media) is required to install some files or a custom action is requiring it.
Either try to find the source or you could use MsiZap from Microsoft to "remove" any windows installer references (metadata) to prevent it from bugging you any further.

Don't we just love those vendors trying to be nice an pre-install software we don't need (or maybe do).
Had similar problem with my PC, alot of software installed on the recovery discs.
And how about support? I'm still waiting for Fujitsu Siemens to fix my computer and it's been close to 1,5 months since they got it the first time, this is the third time. Had some bad memory modules and they replaced the motherboard and one of the harddrives. I guess they get paid per dissatisfied customer.

So far I've gone to RUN, typed "msconfig' , clicked the Startup tab, UNCHECKED the HP Digital Imagining file and restarted my computer. I don't think it actually solved the problem but it keeps the computer from asking for the file at boot-up. When i get a printer i will probably re-install it.
