Cannot Locate Rcprod.msi

Question

Hi, I have purchased Roxio Creator 2009 from the Roxio website and tried to install the program however during the install I get the message:

 

"The feature you are trying to use is on a netwrok resource that is unavailable"

 

It seems the program is trying to locate the file RCPROD.msi in the following directory but cannot locate it:

 

C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Local\Temp\WZSE0.TMP\ROXIOCENTRAL_4X\

 

It asks to try again or enter an alternate path however I cannot locate the RCPROD.msi file anywhere on my system.

 

If I cancel this screen it it asks me to try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'RCPROD.msi'

 

Hitting OK again puts the system into a loop where it asks again to locate the RCPROD.msi file?

 

Has anybody encountered and solved this problem?

 

Thanks in advance!

Have you unzipped the C2009 program file to a folder and tried installing from there? Maybe the RCPROD.msi file did not properly get unzipped when you did the direct install from the exe file.

Thanks! I extracted the file, reinstalled and the rcprod issue was resolved. I still had some other issues (similar to Ken Tucky from a prev post) but managed to get it working after restoring the factory defaults on my laptop and installing the program again.

 

Cheers.

I have this exact same problem - I have done a clean uninstall for creator 2009, deleted all files etc. and then installed Creator 2009 in a folder on my C:/ hard drive. When I start the program, network resource cannot find: RCPROD.msi

 

Where do I find it to install it?

Do you have the downloaded version, and did you extract the contents of the .exe file, to the folder you made on your hard drive? Just copying the .exe file probably won't work.

Currenetly having the same problem. The file does not exist in the installation folder so it can't find it, did you get yours solved??

 

See Post #3, in this thread.

I have downloaded the program 3 serapate times... placed the program in the folder that it was created from and still no results.

 

I am getting upset over this... can someone help? Your post # 3 does not work for me...

 

I got and EXE file and I see the file being extracted...

 

Thanks

I too am having this exact problem and have done just as you have ... clean uninstall and then reinstall. As you, for me the post #3 didn't help. I cannot find the extracted files anywhere on my Vista machine. The folder which is supposed to hold the RCPROD.msi file does not exist. It apparently wasn't created. Plus, I don't see an option of where the extracted files can be placed.

 

I have had installation problems with every single Easy CD Creator, Easy Media Creator, and now Creator 9. I'm the fool, I guess, for expecting these installation problems from going away. One thing I did not do was uninstall the McAfee/ATTYahoo free firewall/antivirus program I use from ATTYahoo. It cannot be closed during installations, so it has to be UNINSTALLED and then reinstalled. I suppose I might try that. But I have only so many hours in the day for this foolishness.

You have to extract the files, yourself. They aren't extracted, when downloaded.

Thank you, Daithi. You are the first to provide me with a specific answer today, one which includes a "how to" answer. Very much appreciated. The other vague answers I've seen in this forum are pretty much useless.

I am sorry that you feel that way. The answer, that I gave to you, was intended to help you.

How do you unzip the file to a specific folder when Vista automatically begins the unzipping process when the file is clicked?

 

See Post #11. The key words are "right click", not click.

why are you posting to a 6 year old thread rather than starting you own new thread and provide your information, There may just be an answer for you.

 

Did you look in your Windows Download Folder? Did you sign into your Roxio account? You should be able to re-download from there.
