I am trying to install ACAD 2010 on Windows 7 64 bit machine. I have the files on my hard drive and I am installing from there. During th einstallation process Directx 9.0 installs, Autocad 2010 installs, and then during the language Pack install I get this error "Error 1606. Could not access network location setup". I have searched several KB's, checked my registry, uninstalled re-installed but I can not get past this error. This is a new machine with no prevoius installs. I am not installing to a network as this is a standalone installation.Anyhelp would be grately appreciated..I would like to get back up and running....

Have you checked the error number on autodek's site? Otherwise, try a Repair.

I have researched this endlessly for the last two days. I don't think I can do a repair because acad will not actually install. This error comes during the installation process and I have no choice but to cancel th einstallation process. Some of the kb's suggested that it was a problem in the registry for the user, or a security issue for the usser. I have tried all of these and everything looks fine. I have even tried to install as the dedicated administrator even though this is a single person standalone machine. It is making pull my hair out.

I would suggest the following


1.  Turn off the User Access Control in Windows

2.  Clear out the TEMP folder on the System

3.  If you have copied the contents of the Disk to the Hardrive confirm that all files have copied correctly.
