2 . To test , i have put it in my drive , and use this:
System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory("C:\\temp");
WebClient client = new WebClient();
client.DownloadFile(new Uri("MyDriveLink"), "C:\\temp\\Update.msi");

1. You would put it either on a file share if distributing within a LAN, or on a web site if distributing over the internet or corporate network that doesn't use file shares.

2. I doubt that it is the download operation which is giving you that error. How exactly are you trying to "execute" the installation?
