Yep - I have been using the purchased version of Captivate 3
and then purchased Articulate which appeared to be less "glitchy".
However, today I went to use Captivate to do some screen captures
and it's giving me a fatal error and can't find the program. Yes,
I've restarted the system but it tells me it can't find the
installation path to Captivate. It's as if Captivate has
uninstalled itself. Has anyone experienced this. I have done the
entire uninstall/reinstall due to freezes before and I hope this
isn't another glitch in this new version. Can anyone help. I tried
to print the error screen but it locked up. Any help would be great
- thank you.
I went through again and this is the error code: 1706 - No
valid source could be found for product - installer can not
continue and then it gives me a fatal error during installation. A
reminder, this is an already fully installed, operational product.
By chance has other software been installed recently? I ask,
because I've seen where Captivate as well as RoboHelp and who knows
which other products have a similar issue. Essentially what happens
is that when starting the application (Captivate or RoboHelp in
this case) the Windows Installer utility kicks off. And sometimes
it's the result of another installation gone sour somehow.
Wishing I had more to offer. I did Google the error you
reported and found some references to generic Windows stuff and
I sincerely wish you the best of luck in sorting it all
