Hi Kurt wolfe,

This happens due to incorrect shell folder value type, or due to incorrect data in the registry. To resolve the problem, fix the My Pictures Shell folder paths in the registry accordingly. The default values are given in a tabular column in the following article. There is also a REG fix available in the following page:

Windows stores the location of per-user special folders under the following registry key:

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

Microsoft has a Fix-It solution that fixes most of the shell folder paths (both per-user and per-machine shell folders) automatically. You can download the fix from.

You receive an "Error 1606" error message when you try to install or remove a Microsoft program 

Note: The error message may differ, but you may give a try and check if the issue gets fixed. 

Thanks and Regards:
