When I first started doing package deployment I made a few mistakes. One was with adobe reader 7.0. I made a network install location. Well, it has come back to bite me. I have some machines where I can not install Reader 8.0 becasue I get this error. This error is coming from my DSM Software Delivery logs when I try to install AR 8 It shows the old 1603 error, but this is the true error.

The location is no longer there, but I could recreate it if I absolutely had to (bring up a temp server).
Is there anyway of getting around this? I can not uninstall, re-install, update, ect

Can you not simply uninstall it:

msiexec /qb /x {ProductCode}

where ProductCode is that of the MSI you want to uninstall?

We install from network install points (SMS DP's) all the time, and never have a problem removing whether the original package source is alive or not. At least, not for source issues anyway. :-)

from the log you posted it looks like the error is in the custom action Uninstall703, not your MSI location. If it was simply a probem with the package location, you should be able to remove with the GUID like William said.
