I am sure this is something simple, but I have searched all over in security and installation stuff, and really not having any luck at all, also my legal copy of office 07 is throwing a 1406 code as well and I can't get that resolved. Any help would be great, thanks from a new user
Where did you download your windows 7? If its off a torrent, then its probably a fake version. If its from MSDN, then its Okay. RC from Microsoft is also okay, but seems to me like you got the final version. No watermark.

There has to be more than your telling. Simply put.
1. Is this a CLEAN install?
2. Are you Dual Booting?
3. I do understand you say 7600 RTM.
4. Where did you download from. Technet or MSDN or ?
5. Is the install from DVD or HDD.
6. If DVD what speed did you burn at?
What I'm asking is Give us all the FACTS. so we can give your proper responces.
7. Did you try the Reg entry to Add Take Ownership via Right click?
8. Did you turnoff UAC?
I could go on and on but - sorry we need more and better answers.
Thanks
Read my specs.

This is what MS has to say about your ERROR CODE 1406;
Quote:
This issue may occur if one of the following scenarios is true:
  • The user who is installing the program, or the user who is opening the program or file does not have sufficient permissions to modify sections of the registry that is required to perform the action. The permission for the Everyone group of the registry subkey noted in the error message is not set to Full Control.
  • There is a third-party application on the system that is denying the required access to the registry subkey. In most cases, this behavior is caused by WebRoot Spy Sweeper.
  • The non-administrative user accounts on the computer do not have permission to modify specific files that are used by the Office 2003 Setup program or the Office XP Setup program. These files are used by the Office 2003 Setup program or the Office XP Setup program to register different accounts for access to the Office programs. This issue may occur if a Group Policy high-security template was applied to the computer and if the high-security template restricts access to the following file:
    • Office 2003 C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Data\Opa11.dat
    • Office XP C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Data\Data.dat
    If the non-administrative user accounts cannot modify this file, users cannot start any Office 2003 programs or Office XP programs on the computer. The Opa11.dat file and the Data.dat file are hardware specific. Additionally, these files are compiled during installation of Office.
Simply put you are not ADMIN or have ADMIN Privileges. or

1st, download or move whatever program you want to install to your desktop and install from there, because you may not have access rights to the folder you are trying to install from. With the shadow folders that Vista and 7 have I can't tell what folders I actually have access to, but I know I have access to the desktop. Also hit the windows key and type netplwiz and be sure your user is an administrator.

vautter

could you tell us more about your hardware (fill in your system specs--lower left corner) and your problem. Are you trying to download from the desktop?
