Windows 7 will always alert you about common problems in your computer to maintain a very good functionality level. Usually error codes are displayed in the wake of something amiss happening in your system and one such error code is 1316, which occurs during the installation of a program or during a network problem. Here, the following Windows 7 help guidelines will describe more about this issue and its solutions.
Description of the error
Generally, 1316 error is an installation-related problem. Microsoft’s Developers Network says that the error code appears when a network error had occurred when you tried to read from a file.
However, according to the Microsoft Support website, this error is initiated possibly by two reasons. The first one is that something amiss occurred with a program installation and the second one is a corrupt .NET framework. Fortunately, these issues are easily fixable and we can regain the functionality of the system without much effort.
The very first step is to identify the reason behind the error, to determine whether it is being initiated by a troublesome installation or by an issue on the network. If the error code is prompted by some problem in the program installation, the best solution is to cancel the installation. In addition, you can try removing files, restarting the computer and re-installing the program again. However, if you try to install the data.msl file after inserting the CD into the drive, then it will cause a full installation to occur.
If the problem is due to a corrupt .NET framework, then you have to install the newest version from Microsoft’s website. Now you should restart the computer and re-launch the program. The error will be resolved and it will start working properly.
