Re: Error 1606. Could not access network location Setup.

Thank you for your reply – I was just wondering what to do with this problem: “no properties for the selected objects”. Solution for me was to uninstall Acad2014, disabling roaming profiles and installed it again – no Error 1606 during installation and the problem with properties seems to be fixed – so your solution is working fine.  Thank you again

I was able to solve the problem with the following solution

Resolution:-
The problem is due to a registry location pointing to a non-existent location for the user profile location.

 

Steps to resolve :

  • Go to run.
  • Type ‘regedit’ click ‘ok’. The Registry Editor window opens.
  • Follow the path given below.
  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders]
  • Check the location for “Common Documents”, It will be pointing to a non-existent location
  • Eg. "Common Documents"="C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents"
  • Change the value data of common document as:
  • "Common Documents"="d:\\Users\\Public\\Documents"  (or any valid location)
  • OR create that non-existent folder
  • Run AutoCAD 2014 setup again

Thanks,

 

I had not thought to check the registry. My computer currently has two HHD running in raid 1 for data and a SSD for OS and programs. After correcting file paths, everyhting finally worked.

I just ended up creating a non-roaming profile on my machine. That solved the install issue for me.
