The MSI doesn't repair when the install source is removed from its original location. How can it be fixed?

Here's the scenario:
1. Install the MSI (Having compressed/uncompressed files at its side).
2. Remove the source from its location on the machine.
4. The active setup runs (with switches /fup). But the repair fails with following prompt. It goes looking for the original source from where it was installed.
Isn't the installer supposed to go and look for it in the "%Windir%\installer" folder. It doesn't, which means I am wrong. Is there something to do with the SOURCELIST property? Please suggest, how can it be fixed.
Also, this doesn't happen when I try to repair only the registry keys .i.e with /fu.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!!!
