Installation Path:- C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe

Can’t install latest version “Java JRE -6u20” I Keep getting - Error 1606 Could not access Network Location - Also get the same error if I try to uninstall old version. “Java JRE -6u18”

.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549 advises to check the following Registry Entries
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders. - This checks ok.


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders - This one also checks ok.

I tried Microsofts “Fix it” it didn’t help.

Any advice would be welcome.

This problem has been raised before. The solutions given were not verified as a fix.

U have not said what OS U are using. Here is another fix but check the caveat about the OS in use.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315352

If U type Error 1606 in your browser search box it does give numerous reasons & cures for Error 1606.

Not sure how vital this programme is to U.

U can delete all Java using the Windows clean up Utility.

Details here if U want to try it:

Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
=======================
Although U will see items listed this tool should NOT be used to remove any part of Microsoft Office 2007.

If a programme is installed using Windows Installer it can be removed by using the Microsoft Cleanup Utility.

Download it from here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Once downloaded, open the programme & scroll up & down looking for any Java(TM),JSE or JRE entries.

If found,highlight it/them & click the remove button (bottom right)

Reboot.

I've got two suggestions you could try.

1. Create another administrator account and try updating from there.

2. Go back to a restore point from before you had the problem if you have one.

In case it's any help to you, this is my experience of a similar error on a Vista system.

I was getting 1606 errors in one user account but not the others. I ran traces on the non-working and a working account and compared them. The problem seemed to be associated with the AppData/Roaming folder. I couldn't find any errors in the settings, so I just stopped using that account. Some time later when I checked the account the errors had gone. I'd done the following in the meantime, which may or may not have had an effect.
. corrected the AppData registry entry
. run System File Checker
. run chkdsk
. run disk cleanup

Hope this might help you.

I've had no success with advice given, I tried to install windows uninstall utility, it wouldn't install, I got a Windows Script Host box with an error entry:- ActiveX component can't create object:- 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'

Except for these two items everything else seems ok.
I thank you for your suggestions, I'm going to leave it for now.
