    Error 1606

    I installed Vista on one of the computers on our home network. After much
    hair-pulling I got Vista to recognize the network (I burned the transfer
    program from Vista to CD and ran it on the XP Computer) so I could transfer
    files from this comuputer (running XP Pro) to the Vista computer. However,
    now when I try to install software on the XP computer, I get Error 1606.
    Could not access network location \\IBM-h2zk2sfmypl\shareddocs\Wendy's
    Stuff\My Pictures\.

    How the heck do I fix this problem?

    Wendy--

    Try the regedits in here:

    You receive an "Error 1606" error message when you try to install or remove
    a Microsoft program
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549/

    This list should work as well:

    Re: Error 1606

    I have had VISTA for a couple of years and I don't usually have a problem. Right now I am getting an error 1606 with a message of %APPDATA%\. It won't allow me to use iTunes, there is an error with trying to use or upload Acrobat Reader and I get an message reading "internal error occurred". When I save a Word 2007 document I get all kinds of messages stating there has been a problem with AutoCorrect file. Does anybody have any ideas?

    I keep up with problem reports and checks and right now some of them won't install due to this problems. Thanks

    Hello everyone,
    Well, I have returned to post my results after searching for a solution for hours and finally arriving to one that was specific to my problem....and I decided to share with others experiencing a similar problem.

    I had the same problem as FallonSue....It took a couple of hours of searching but I followed the instructions located here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549/ on a microsoft support page and so far the problem has been fixed.

    Hope this helps!!!
    Good luck
