I have installed the SDK, after successful installation, If I try to install Orca.Msi I get the error message with error code 2356. I do not see any issue why I should get this error. Any fix for this issue.

2356 = Could not locate cabinet in stream: [2].
The MSI could be corrupted but seems like a long shoot ;)

Which Microsoft Platform SDK did you install?

I tried installing the Software Development Kit (SDK) for the Microsoft® Windows® Vista™ January 2006 Community Technology Preview (CTP) on 2 different servers.
1. Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2
2. Micorostt Windows 2000 server - service pack 4

I get the same error on both the servers.

Well, get "Windows Server 2003 SP1 Platform SDK" or "Windows Server 2003 R2 Platform SDK" instead.

I am using MS Windows Installer( .msi ), Visual Studio 2005 on Windows XP SP2, and edited the MSI with Orca. The edited installation file works on my development system, but I get the 2356 error message when I copy it to a remote server and attempt to install it. I installed Orca on the remote system ( Windows Server 2000 ), but it still doesn't work. The unedited .msi installs fine.

Any ideas?

The unedited .msi installs fine.
It seems pretty clear to me that your edit unintentionally messed something up. You just learned a very important lesson: never, EVER edit vendor-supplied MSIs, except as a very last resort. Use transforms instead.

rather than install the SDK & Orca on a server we installed both on a VM XP desktop.
