    Windows Installer Error - Scan 1706

    Everytime when I start my computer then I am getting Windows Installer popup. I am getting the box with Windows Installer appearing to be running and then I will get a Windows Configuring Scan notice. After that a window appears saying that "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk." When I cancel all this things then I get error 1706. Can anyone please help.

    Have you got HP printers with you? When I searched for the error message then I found that you should contact the printer vendor because they might be having a solution for this error related to the printer. You can also try to remove and reinstall the printer drivers and see if that works for you.

    Even I was facing this same issue and thanks to this post, I have finally solved this problem. I reinstalled the drivers for the HP 6310 after removing it and then it worked for me.
