Recurring “Error 1606” problem on Mustek Scanner

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

In my Mustek scanner, I attempted to set up a driver 64-bit but it could not be installed. Message displayed “Error 1606” and cannot access network location. I am using 64-bit win7 pro.

I contacted Mustek but I was just referred to Microsoft Registry Fix. Then I’ve used the automatic fix even though I knew that my registry entries matched with theirs, but same thing happened. 

I still got the Error 1606. Mustek told me it’s a Microsoft problem and they declined to help. Are there any suggestions that I could use?

To resolve that issue, you will need edit the Windows Registry, and you will need to make sure that you modify the REGISTRY settings properly because doing it incorrectly may end up causing serious problems which may prevent your computer from booting properly. Follow the procedure below:

  • On your computer, click Start.
  • And then click Run.
  • Type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  • You will then locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerUser Shell Folders
  • And then delete the entries that show the path that is listed in the error message.

That should help fix the problem successfully.

Error 1606 is received when you install or uninstall a Microsoft program.  This issue is came from windows platform. If your machine is Windows 7 Professional / 64 bit machine then you will have this issue. But if your machine is Windows 7 Home / 64 bit you will not occurred this issue. Please update your operating system and check the problem again. If still there is a problem you will have to use Windows 7 Home operating system.Hope Microsoft will fix this soon.
