Error codes are always a cause of concern for the average Microsoft Windows user. These errors alert you to a specific problem that your PC has encountered during that point of time. Let us take the case of the common Windows 7 error called the Error Code 1316. It often occurs during the installation of any given program and is easily corrected via one of the several different methods available.
Error 1316 Description
Windows tech support says that the error 1316 is an error that occurs due to problems in installation. According to the Microsoft Developers Network website, the code appears when a network error occurred while attempting to read from a file. This is an error that occurs quite commonly among Windows 7 users and can be resolved easily as well.
Situations where they come up
Windows tech support believes that there are only two situations where this error can spring up. One is when the program in question is not properly installed. A prominent example being is to have Disc 2 CD in the drive instead of just the Disc 1 CD. The possible explanation for this error is a corrupt .NET framework.
Solution for error 1316
When either of the above mentioned situations is found out to be true, then you can go ahead with the different resolution methods stated below. The first possible solution is to cancel the installation, remove the files, restart the computer and begin again. However, installing the Data.msl file after installing the CD into the drive will allow for a full installation to occur. If the .NET framework is corrupt, install the newest version from Microsoft’s website, restart the computer and reinstall the program.
Tech support also suggests you to perform a clean boot, install the program in clean boot state and then check it. Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may have to contact the program manufacturer for any updates or uninstall and re-install the program. This is the only option in this case.
With these basic troubleshooting steps, you will likely resolve the issue yourself, thus saving money in not employing an external computer expert to solve the problem at hand. Thank you.
