Need some help. I'm trying to install the Microsoft
Wireless Kit MN-820 and when I try to load the software I
get an error that reads "The installer has encountered an
unexpected error installing this package. This may
indicate a problem with this package. The error code is
Where 2 is the error and 3 is the setup trying to install.
The error (2) is most often reported as 1632 ("The Temp
folder is either full or inaccessible. Verify that the
Temp folder exists and that you can write to it.")
This error may occur if there are insufficient privileges
on the %windir%\Installer folder, or the inability of the
Windows Installer service to create the %windir%
NOTE: This behavior can also occur if you have only Read
permissions to the Winnt folder. This condition prevents
the Installer folder from being created by Setup.
If installing from a mapped drive letter in a terminal
services session: "Windows 2000 and earlier operating
systems do not support passing mapped drive letter
information between terminal server sessions. Since
Windows Installer service runs as a service in the
console session, mapped drive letters established in
remote sessions are not visible to Windows Installer
service, resulting in this error. This only applies when
running the service in Application Server mode, not
Remote Admin mode."
Note that this limitation no longer exists in Windows XP
and later operating systems.
