Error 1606

By wew926 ·
I have a windows 98SE based computer. After trying to install a registered program AutoCad 2002 from my H.D. (located in c:\AutoCad2002\AutoCad2002) I got an error message:
"Error 1606: could not access network location C:\AutoCad2002\AutoCad2002".Ever since then when trying to install the same program from the CDrom I get the same error message. I have a PC base not networked.
Question: where is the windows installer.exe, how can I edit it or delete/replace it or anything.

The above link (u'll have to cut and paste it into your browser, or, alternatively, go to the MS KB page and search for article number Q313928) should help u resolve this problem. While the article in question talks about different program/s, the problem-error 1606 is the same, and the solutions, with the appropriate modifications of locations and program names, apply to your case as well.The jist of it is that u probably had a previous version of AutoCad on your system ,and it wasn't uninstalled properly (even if u followed the right procedure), and now u have to remove it's remainders to solve the problem. The article offers several ways to do it.
HTH
Good luck.

The answer was right on. I went to the M.S. location, downloaded the article and fixed the my problem, bam. No problem. This is the second time you guys have resolved my problem. I have told all of my friends that if there is a problem that we can answer to head straight to `TechRepublic'.

Thanks,

Ed

PS. I have submitted this response before. I guess it got lost in the mail.

Thanks again,

Ed
