Most of the searches I've performed regarding this error are only relevant for Windows XP. I have vista and while most programs are able to install on my machine I have a few that whenever I try to install them I get the Error 1606 and references the APPDATA registry key from the shell folder.

I've used various registry cleaners (just the free ones) to no avail and even have changed the values on all the registry keys in the shell folder to what they are by defualt in Vista as per one of their knowledge base articles regarding error 1606.

I'm running out of solutions to try and desperately need assistance. I have noticed that my type of registry key is listed as REG_SZ and my understanding is that it should be REG_EXPAND_SZ. Is there anyway to change those values? I'm willing to try any suggestion.

Thanks in advance
