Re: Error 1606 could not access network location windows vista and adobe reader

This issue may occur if there is an incorrect setting in one of the following registry subkeys:
Quote:
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.check here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549

Re: Error 1606 could not access network location windows vista and adobe reader

I am having this same error today when I try to install/uninstall adobe reader. AIR, Shockwave & Flash worked, but adobe reader quit working and I cannot uninstall it or install it?

I opened the registry file to see if it matched the table noted from Sam.D above, and the veryfirst line line said "Default" with "value not set" and the %APPDATA% did NOT say "Roaming" behind it.

I didn't know if this default line should be there or not, but I didn't want to delete it as these instructions were posted nearly 2 years ago. I thought maybe this line was added as part of an update?

Any thoughts? I really appreciate any help.

I think I might try the system restore though, as that seems fairly harmless in case I screw it up, and this problem jsut started this morning.

Re: Error 1606 could not access network location windows vista and adobe reader

i removed adobe CS5 extended and got adobe reader 9.10 corrupted. i then installed AR 9.30 and again installed AP CS5 when needed. Removing it resulted the same error again.
I GOT A SOLUTION-
1. uninstall adobe reader with "YOUR UNINSTALLER" in SUPER MODE ( u can download its crack version easily from eaZYdown, flmsdown.com, downarchive.com. etc)
2. reinstall the Adobe Reader

it worked for me in win 7 ultimate !

thanx 1

It might be a faulty USB drive or maybe the usb ports are not working correctly. Have you tried disabling the antivirus and then inserting the usb pen drive and checking whether it is hanging the computer or not? You can also try to remove old usb drivers and rollback drivers.

Calvin,

I have completed all of the steps up to the the adminstrative tools. When I get to the user registry, no adminstrative tools exist; but I do notice that it goes to the public file. What do I need to do to fix this?
