I got a scenario like

I installed an app from network share and while using the connection is failed......

if any key path is missed then obviously it has to go for self heal.... right

Then 'll it again ask for source? or take the MSI from cache folder and got repaired?

I want to clarify that actually when the Installer mSI cache is used and what it contains? Is it same as the Original MSI file? Why the size of the cached msi is less compared to Original MSI


pls clear my doubt

Thanks in Advance

You need original sources if some media are left. But for repairing regsitry Windows Installer can use local cache.

=> Local Cache = "Original MSI" minus "Media" ( files/cabinets).
