I'm trying to install Quicken 2011 on a Windows 7 machine, but I keep getting an error about half way through the install claiming it cannot access the network location '
I've read through the knowledge base article about this problem and have verified all the registry entries detailed in this table. Everything looks to be correct. I have even installed and run the "Fix it for me" package linked on the same page, but it seems to have no effect.
I have also both run the installer as administrator and logged off and back on using an administrator account. I get the exact same error in all cases.
Also, the %APPDATA% variable seems to be set fine via a command prompt. If I run
cd %APPDATA%\. it changes me into the
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming directory as expected.
I should also mention that an older version of Quicken (2004) was previously installed on this machine. I ran the uninstaller but it did not complete successfully. I tried manually cleaning out the registry after the failed uninstall, but I'm wondering if there is a remnant of the previous version still lurking which is causing these issues.
My questions are:
- What could cause a 1606 error besides the standard User Shell Folders registry keys being wrong?
- What else should I try in order to get this installer to run successfully?
