Error 1606. Could not access network location.

If you get this in AutoCAD 2008 or AutoCAD LT 2008 take a look at this Knowledge Base document: Error 1606 during stand-alone or network installation on Windows Vista

    The default Vista registry keys are shown here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.windows.vista.installation_setup&tid=1454df94-207c-4b75-95bb-9e92154d9827&cat=en_US_d02fc761-3f6b-402c-82f6-ba1a8875c1a7&lang=en&cr=&sloc=en-us&m=1&p=1

    and here:

    You should make sure they match. On my Vista machine, the registry was corrupted by Windows XP registry keys. A Vista incompatible program must have put them there. Instead of starting C:\Users\ which is where Vista locates user files, a lot of keys started with C:\Documents and Settings which is where Windows XP locates user files.

    The Autocad Installer would therefore try to look for files in C:\Documents and Settings and find nothing as that directory does not exist by default in Vista.

    If more / different keys than those listed in the documents above are corrupted, then you may want to try printing off the same area of the registry from a fresh Vista installation or another user account from the same machine.
