  1. Msiinstaller Event ID 11606 / Error 1606 when Office 2016 attempts to update


    When attempting to install the updates for Office 2016 on Windows 10 Enterprise wokstation I'm getting the following in the Application Event Viewer:


    Product: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 -- Error 1606. Could not access network location Location of your Public rootfolder\Desktop\.


    Most of the searching I've done points to KB articles that are dead links on Microsoft. I did find the KB in an archive site that suggested it was a problem in the registry. I checked the registry and even compared it with another working system - they're the same. The links I did find also pointed to a registry issue. The keys I was looking at were:


    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders


    and that has: Desktop REG_EXPAND_SZ %USERPROFILE%\Desktop


    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders


    and that has: Common Desktop REG_EXPAND_SZ %PUBLIC%\Desktop


    I ran a #sfc /SCANNOW and rebooted, still getting the same error. Looking for any ideas at all.

    :)

    ^^ Now this, Larry, is a decent reply! Kudos to you! And shame on these lame, so-called MS helpdesk 'Engineers' who just blab about disabling your Anti-Virus software. Can't believe someone is actually paying those people!

    Again, you have my gratitude, Sir!
