ITunes unable to install? - Could not access network location %APPDATA%/.

Okay, I received a never used iPod Nano
(Model MC034LL ,Version 1.0. 2 PC, it looks like this http://www.iphonemag.ch/wp-content/uploa…
for Christmas this year, however; I'm having some trouble installing iTunes.
I have already downloaded iTunes, but installing seems to be the problem.
The 'iTunesSetup' icon appears on my desktop and I double-clicked it to begin the installing process.
When I do so, it says
"Gathering required information... Status: Computing Space Requirements"
after a few seconds it says, "Could not access network location %APPDATA%/."
As soon as I click 'retry' it says the same thing.
If I press cancel, the same message pops up and then it says,
"iTunes Installer Completed
The installer encountered errors before iTunes could be configured.
Your system has not been modified To retry these operations at a later time, please run the installer again.
Click exit to finish the installer"
I tried the help page for iTunes, but noting seemed helpful.

With that particular variety of 1606 (it's a 1606 error message even though the 1606 error message number isn't returned by the iTunes installer), the following Microsoft document is worth a try:

  • I am having trouble re insalling itunes i get the message "Could not access network location %APPDATA%|.

    Help  can't install or uninstall itunes keep getting the message " could not access network location %APPDATA%\, "

    And follow this:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925
    Apple moved some drivers for 64-bit now to where they should have been.
    Quicktime also use to place files outside the norm.
    One of the reasons I recommend when it comes to Apple:
    Wait for the ".1" and always use the uninstaller first and then install.
    That means you may want manual standalone installer instead - and that way you have 10.4.1 in case you need to later downgrade.

  • When i try to install i tunes it goes so far down the installation process then i get a message ' could not access network location %APPDATA%\.  Can any one help.

    When i try to install i tunes, it goes so far down the installation process and then comes up with a message ' could not access network location %APPDATA%\.  I then retry and it comes up with the same message.
    It also tells me i tunes needs 'Quick Time' to support the software.  I have downloaded Quicktime from i tunes seperately and gone through the whole process again, only to get the same message.
    Can anyone please help?

    These kind of messages can often be cleared by using the Microsoft Installer cleanup Utility.
    Here is a method for cleanup of your old iTunes installation and reinstall.
    == uninstall with cleanup ==
    Download a fresh copy of iTunes and the stand alone version of Quicktime (the one without iTunes)
    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Save the files on your PC.
    Download and install Microsoft Installer cleanup utility, there are instructions on the page as well as the download. Note that what you download is the installer not the program – you have to run it to install the program. The installer doesn't give any message to confirm the installation.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/
    (To run the program – All Programs>>Windows Install)
    Now use the following method to remove iTunes and its components:
    XP
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925
    Vista or Win 7
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923
    *If you hit a problem with one of the uninstalls don't worry*, carry on with the deleting of files and folders as directed in the method.
    When you get to deleting Quicktime files in the system32 folder as advised in the method, you can delete any file or folder with Quicktime in the name.
    Restart your PC.
    Run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. (Start > All Programs > Windows Install Clean Up)
    Remove any references you find to the programs you removed - strictly speaking you only need to worry about those programs where the uninstall failed.
    If you don’t see an entry for one of the programs that did not uninstall, look out for blank entries or numeric entries that look like version numbers e.g. 7.x for Quicktime or 1.x for Bonjour.
    restart your PC
    Install the stand alone Quicktime and check that it works.
    If it does, install iTunes.

  • Install Problem: "Could not access network location %APPDATA%\."

    I get "Could not access network location %APPDATA%\." when trying to install or uninstall itunes. Has anyone seen this. I've tried several of the general troubleshooting topics.

    Similar problem..."Could not access network location ." went through all the microsoft repairs for a 1606 error. No resolve. My itunes used to work perfectly then when I went through an itunes initiated update, then my itunes would bring up the error whenever I tried to update. I uninstalled itunes then tried to reinstall without any success. Still get the error. And now I dont have itunes. Has anyone figured this out yet or do I need to abandon and go to droid?

    I have adobe reader 8.1.3 installed and cannot uninstall it as i get the same error message as when i try to open files or download the new version. When I type %appdata% into run nothing comes up. I have been through lots of other threads and cannot find a solution so ive made my own please help!

    You can download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/ - run the downloaded installer, then start the
    program from Start | Programs | Windows Install Clean Up.  Select Adobe Reader, then click 'Remove'.
    N.B. I've heard that this program can cause problems if Office 2007 is installed; don't use it if you have Office 2007!
    The above tool helps you to uninstall Adobe Reader, but it will not fix the basic problem with the corrupt %APPDATA% environment variable.  You can try to fix it with http://fixitcenter.support.microsoft.com/
    P.S. this software is still beta; I strongly recommend to make a System Restore Point before proceeding.  Let us know if you need any help with this (and please state your Windows version if you do).

  • ADOBE READER 8.1 WILL NOT WORK-KEEP GETTING ERROR MESSAGE 1606: COULD NOT ACCESS NETWORK LOCATION %APPDATA%

    Have tried to uninstall the Adobe Program but it will not let me.  I keep getting the 1606 error message.  I have went to the Microsoft Help site and it says that the registry may need to be modified.  They also advised you that if you do not modify it correctly you may have very serious problems.

    Please see this Microsoft KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549/
    Some registry entry may have been corrupted, and it needs to be fixed.  If you don't know how to edit the registry, do you have somebody who is confident enough to edit the Windows registry?
    Anyway, for now I just want you to check something in the registry - don't modify anything yet!
    Click Start | Run | type regedit [Enter]
    Once the Registry Editor is open, drill down to the following subkey
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    In here you should see multiple entries, one being AppData - what is the data value on the right side?  It should be %USERPROFILE%\Application Data.
    Please close the registry editor now, and report back what you found.
