Re: re-installing error 1606

Delete the key (registry path) listed in the error from the Windows Registry, and run the installation again.
or if that doesn't work, I read this from another post.

Try the following to fix the probelem:
1. Run regedit.
2. go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
3. In User Shell Folder find the Value Name "Recent" and rename it to say "RecentOld".
4. Next create a Expandable String Value.
5. The value name will be "Recent" and the value date will be "%USERPROFILE%\Recent".
6. When your done your entry should look like this:

Name: Recent
Data: %USERPROFILE%\Recent

This should take care of your problem.

Owners manual, usually PDF on your install disk. It should have the error. OR MFG web site and possibly customer service. It looks like an unusual error, they may actually like to know what is happening to their products.

On my Dell Dimension 3000 using Win XP it refuses to install properly. Went to Canon Help Line but their ideas have not worked either. Changed USB leads and sockets - not working.

Canon Help Line couldnt fix the problem. I tried installing on another Dell 3000 with the same result - incomplete installation. This looked like a Dell problem - so I went to Dell web site and downloaded about 10 System updates, including a Flash Bios chip.
After re-booting I turned off all Anti-Virus and Firewall, and guess what? It loaded and installed like a dream.
Printer now working fine!

Because my Deskjet 932C wasn't printing at all, I downloaded a new driver for it from the HP site. Now it prints but prints only the top portion of a page -- sometimes about 1.5 inches, sometimes 3 inches,...

I would recommend uninstalling the installed driver from your system, disconnect the USB cable (if one is installed), reboot.

Once the system comes back up, turn off your anti-virus. Now install the printer driver again. Install the USB cable for the printer (if that's how you're connecting) and finish the install.

Re-enable your anti-virus.
