some of you may have heard of this, but its driving me insane, When i try to install 3d Studio Max it comes up with "Error 1606 Could not access network location ::Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop" i have looked up all the usual fixes. They say to edit a file in \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders. The String is Common Administrative Tools. I don't have this string, which means i cant edit it so im kinda lost at what to do so can some one clever out there help me please! thanks in advance

What other values do you have under this Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders.

If Necessary, You could create a new 'string' value .....(The String is Common Administrative Tools)

I wasn't insinuating XP was priated. The warez thing is about DISTRIBUTING warez. And yes, it does have someting to do with it. It can be stripped down/altered to circumvent copy protection. Where'd you get it? Because considering you're 14 and the cost of the program is prohibitive.......well, it just doesn't seem possible. Create the new string mentioned by ZSH and it should all work out....

Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK. Locate and click (highlight) the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

In the right pane of the Registry Editor window, double-click Common Administrative Tools. In the Value data box of the Edit String dialog box that appears, type the following line, and then click OK: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools

On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor. Restart the computer.

You can PM me or IM me on my AIM name @ Xx Shortdog xX and I can remotely connect to your computer and do it for you.

Remember when you change the registry, you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
