Alcohol Installation Problem!



Makes me feel pretty smart to have trouble even installing this program - please gimme the benefit of the doubt.

Anyway, installer gives the following error message:
Error 1606: Could not access network location %USERPROFILE%\My Pictures.

What does this have to do with installation?

Any idears?


This is a common problem. It is a bug in windows installer usually caused by upgrading to windows xp. To correct it, you should open regedit, and verify the entries of this key:

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

and this one:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Make sure the paths point to the correct locations.


Many thanks! That was the fix.
