Default "ERROR 1606... \Plugins" during OfficeXP installation

Hi,

I'm trying to install Office XP on a laptop that has
Office 97 on it. Very early during installation I get the
message

"Error 1606. Could not access network location \Plugins."

and installation aborts.

I searched through MS Knowledgebase articles; although
there were articles dealing with similar situations, I
could not figure out how these apply to my situation
(i.e., with '\Plugins').

Can somebody help me? Thanks..

Tolga

RESOLUTION:
=================
Could not access network location \"Path to my documents folder" is what it
should be.Most probably this path may have been changed and set to what you
see now.

Error Message When You Install Plus! for Windows XP: "Error 1606. Could Not
Access Network Location"
View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q307683
SYMPTOMS
When you run Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP Setup, you may receive the
following error message

Error 1606. Could not access network location \\server name\path\My
Pictures.
where \\server name\path represents the location of the My Documents
folder.
CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the target, or actual location of the My
Documents folder, points to a folder on a remote computer, and that
location is unavailable when you install Plus! for Windows XP.

For example, this behavior may occur when you modify the default location
of My Documents to point to a network location, and you then attempt to
install Plus! for Windows XP when you are disconnected from the network.
WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, use one of the following methods, as appropriate
to your situation.
Method 1
Make sure that you are connected to the remote computer that the target
location of the My Documents folder refers to, and then run Plus! for
Windows XP Setup.
Method 2
Change the target location of the My Documents folder to a folder on the
local computer, and then run Plus! for Windows XP Setup. To do this, follow
these steps:
Click Start, right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
Click the Target tab.
In the Target box, do one of the following:
Click Restore Default, and then click OK.

By default, the location of the My Documents folder is C:\Documents and
Settings\user name\My Documents, where C is the drive on which Windows is
installed, and user name is the currently logged-on user.

-or-
Type the path to the folder that you want on the local computer, and then
click OK. For example, type C:\My Stuff.

If the folder does not exist, the Create Message dialog box is displayed.
Click Yes to create the folder, and then click OK.

-or-
Click Move, click the folder that you want to store your documents in, and
then click OK twice.

If you want to create a new folder, click Make New Folder. Type a name for
the folder, and then click OK twice.
In the Move Documents box, click Yes to move your documents to the new
location.
Insert your Plus! for Windows XP compact disc into your computer's CD-ROM
or DVD-ROM drive.
Run Plus! for Windows XP Setup.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products
that are listed at the beginning of this article.
