Windows Installer keeps trying to load from unavailable loc

I installed platform SDK Nov 2001 on a server and ever since I get a Windows Installer error message every time I restart IIS, start a proccess etc.
First a pop up box says "Window Installer, trying to install" followed by a 2nd pop up box saying "The feature you a trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable".

I have tried removing the SDK and reinstalling it but I can neither becaise of a windows installer related error message.

How do I correct this situation?

Dave,

Note, you will need to reinstall the application and any updates after performing these steps!
 
1. Download and install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. You find this utility in the MS Knowledge Base at article Q238413 - Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
 
2. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows Install CleanUp.
 
3. Click to select the product in question, click Remove, and then click OK to confirm removing the product.
 
4. Reinstall the application and any other updates that you want.

When you initially installed the Platform SDK, did you do a full or a partial install?  This sounds similar to something which happens when you do a partial install of Office 2K or XP; when you try to perform a task requiring a particular component, the installer (UN)helpfully pops up, asking you to provide the media.

Assuming the SDK gives you the option, maybe try a "Full" install?
