Re: error code 1606

To assist you requires knowing what software and if possible what version of the software you were installing. Some software is not compatible with Vista yet, some may never be and others already have made updates available -- part of the problem with your issue is determining where in that list of conditions your software falls. As well as possibly providing a link to a version of the software that claims to be installable on you machine.

You could also have the right software and an installation issue but that still requires knowing about the software that generated the error. If the message contained more than code 1606 the full text of the message would also be helpful.

I am running Windows 7. When I try to install some programs I get the error message: 'ERROR: 1606 COULS NOT ACCESS NETWORK LOCATION %APPDATA%. Can anyone help me with this?

well, the problem could be that because that most programs are not compatible with windows 7 yet. the best thing that i would do is wait until 10/22/09 for the actual realease of the product and reinstall it.

Error Code 1606


Hello fellow Corel Users:

After buying Corel X3 and getting that awful 1606 Error message,

I finally found my way to the Corel Update & Patches page and downloaded the patches and installed them.

Then finally, after 2 days of trying, I succeeded in getting Corel to Install:

Go to the address below and install Hot Patch Number 1.


It is a 3 step process, first download it, then execute it, then reboot your PC and try the Corel Installation again.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
