When installing NetAdvantage on your machine, you may run into an error that says either “Error 1606. Could not access network location %SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot\” or “Error 1606. Could not access network location \inetpub\wwwroot\”

Additional Information

To work around this error, a registry key needs to be modified. Please note that Infragistics strongly recommends you back up your registry before making any changes.

1) Type "regedit" in the Run From Start Menu dialog box to open the "Registry Editor".
2) Find the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\InetStp\PathWWWRoot
3) Change the value of this registry key from "%SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot" or " \inetpub\wwwroot\" to "C:\inetpub\wwwroot". If your default website in IIS is instead stored in a different location, set the value of this registry key to that path instead.
