printer wont install Error 1606 could not access network location %APPDATA%\
I'm getting the error as well. I cannot install any microsoft updates, no HP, adobe and I can't install a printer that I once had installed. I reinstalled the O/S a month ago and have been trying to add the programs I once ran on here with no issues
but nothing will install and the error appears.
