Hello FrAgLe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Other than adjusting for the German name for the folders instead of English, it should still work.

Hello Shawn,

Thought of adding the Microsoft KB as well the Fixit will restore all the User Shell to default location (The Title might sound different)

You receive an "Error 1606" error message when you try to install or remove a Microsoft program
