This is a re-post. as I'm eager to solve this.

Upon launching setup from Control Panel -> Programs & Features, my
installer (MBA) failed with following errors:

[0AB4:096C][2015-09-15T14:52:06]w341: *Prompt for source of
container:* WixAttachedContainer,
path: E:\VA\My.Setup.exe
[0AB4:096C][2015-09-15T14:52:06]e054: Failed to resolve source for file:
E:\VA\My.Setup.exe, error: 0x80070002.
[0AB4:096C][2015-09-15T14:52:06]e000: Error 0x80070002: Failed while
prompting for source (original path 'E:\VA\My.Setup.exe').
[0AB4:096C][2015-09-15T14:52:06]e311: Failed to acquire container:
WixAttachedContainer to working path:
error: 0x80070002.

I guess, this was happening in CachePackageBegin event. so I tried to
read WixAttachedContainer as string variable, but it popups this error:
BootstrapperCore:Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070490)

*Question: How can I resolve WixAttachedContainer and raise the dialog to
get user's input for "Prompt for source of container"??*

Thanks a bunch
