Error message - The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removalbe disk that is not available





I'm not sure what the sequence of events are that caused my problem but I think that SP4 might have something to do with it.


The symptoms that I get is that the Updater (I think) is trying to run a update and it looks for a file (I think it is UM.msi) but cannot find it. I then click on cancel.


This pops up all the time and is busy driving me nuts!


How do I solve this problem?






Just to add some details - it also gives me an Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product Roxio Creator 2009. The Windows Installer cannot continue.

No not the update, but defiantly time for the Clean Install…

I seem to be having the same problem and a clean install of Roxio 2009 makes no difference.


I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Every time I hit the Windows-E key to start Explorer I get a message saying that it is Installing and then Configuring Roxio 2009. If I let it run to completion then it completes ok. However, next time I restart my PC it will do this all over again. If I open the start Menu and select Computer and so open Explorer that way then this doesn't happen. I think it might be something to do with installing right-click options for Explorer.


Today I installed Norton Utilities and used it to clean up the registry and other things. I figured that might cure the problem but it made no difference. Indeed, now, when I start Norton I also get the Roxio installer coming up. Hitting ESC gets rid of it.


I have completely uninstalled the version of Roxio that came with Vista. And completely uninstalled Roxio 2009, and re-installed it all over again from scratch, but nothing fixes the problem.


Any ideas?


Kind Regards

Looking through the Windows event log, it says that it's doing this because a component is missing...

I have a downloaded version of Roxio 2009 and it came with two items to be installed (which I found surprising when I expected only one) these are called...


FN56IA50R13_Creator2009_11.0.exe and



And they were installed in that sequence.


Does that spark any ideas?


Kind Regards
