I tried to install the newest version on BOINC 7.0.64 for Windows 7 and keep getting the following ERROR:

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

"Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package "BOINC.msi" in the box below." and this is in the box below

C:\Windows\Downloaded Installations\{462FAC8D-A1E5-4078-B45C-38CB50C177DB}\

I now unable to run any of my BOINC project. Any suggestions as to how to correct this problem?

Reinstall your previous version of Boinc, then uninstall it, and then install the latest version again.

And if that doesn't work, there are more options given in this BOINC FAQ.

Thanks for the link to the FAQ. The WICUU from this link http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall worked great the other link under step 2 that went to a site other than Microsoft I did not try but I looked at it and to tell you the truth I did not trust the site
