Getting the following error during the installation of SQL LiteSpeed :
Error 1901. Error attempting to read from the source installation database: c:\WINDOWS\Installer\3181401.msi ('3181401' is a randomly generated value)
Is the installation be run on the server or from a share / mapped drive? Please try to run the installer package locally on the server, problem could be with with share and/or mapping.
Other possible reasons can be the user ID running the installation does not have the required permissions or the downloaded msi itself is corrupt - you may need to download the file for a second time.
