I have been trying to install MS Access on a few machines and I get the same error every time on every machine. I am having to create a USB or CD file from an ISO....(thanks Microsoft). I create the file easily, but when going to use it on the colleague's computer i receive the following error message...."Setup cannot find Access.WW\AccWW.cab. Browse to a valid installation source, and click ok." I have looked and the file it is asking for is on the disk and on the flash drive. I have even copied the files over to the local machine and ran from there and still receive the error message. I have also extracted the cab file to the same directory as the install files and I still receive the error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  I would try placing the ISO on the USB, then on the target machine, mount it with something like Virtual Clone Drive and see if you get the error that way.
