SQL Server 2008 Native Client cannot be found

 Hit a weird issue while trying to install SQL server 2008 native client. I'm sure i have the correct installer and is extracted to local drive. Throw me resource unavailable 'sqlncli_x64.msi' not found.

Log file shows : "An installation package for the product Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'sqlncli_x64.msi'."

Endup is the issue with previous installation caused some incomplete setup on the client, go into control panel, find the SQL 2008 native client.
Unintall the existing client, then reinstall. Everything run successfully after that.
