Error 1606 When I try to install (XP SP1)
I have been unable to install new programs and always get the 1606 error " Could not access network location %USERPROFILE%My DocumentsMy Pictures."
I tracked down the error code and tried the fix suggested by Micrososft - no luck. Other fixes suggested on the web have also failed to resolve the situation. Then I noted a similar posting in this forum <post#=472913>post 472913</post#> and that led me to a suggested fix ( <post#=470328>post 470328</post#>) and ultimately a download of the Windows Installer (latest). All to no avail I'm afraid.
I know I have a problem with the My Pictures folder (e.g. I cannot get it to appear on my start menu) and I have checked the registry but have not found anything odd or missing. If I open a new account I can resolve the My Pictures issue buit still cannot install any programs.
Can anyone suggest a solution or point me in the right direction.

Are you on a home network or one at work ??? It may also have something to do with you not having SP2 installed.
There's a VBScript script file fix from Kelly's Korner here at #66 that might apply to your problem.<IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3tuserpics/DocWatson_sig.gif>
