Ask for CDROM when adding feature

- Standard Project
- Installation from a CDROM

Currently, if the user's install needs to repair (user deleted a key file), the install kindly asks for the CDROM if it's not in the drive.

However, if the user wants to add another feature via Add/Remove Programs and the CDROM is not in the drive,  you get "Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product <your product>.  The Windows Installer cannot continue."

Anyone figured out how to make it ask nicely for the CDROM?
