If you are in the technical support business and using Autodesk product I am sure you have experienced “Error 1406”. It is not only Autodesk product that are affected by this error, but in my business it is a big issue. There are many options on how to resolve this issue, if you look at my partner, Area 31 , he has posted a couple of solutions, for you the user. I have even used his solutions myself a time or two.
Regarding this issue I have a new solution to add to the mix. I’ve asked Autodesk if there is a magic button, but unfortunately it doesn’t exist. They have directed me to the adobe website for the removal of Macromedia Flash. I would like to offer you this option too.
Now once the installation of your Autodesk Product is complete you can Re-install Macromedia Flash. They say with the new Macromedia Flash you should not run into any problems, but as you well know nothing is perfect and I have run into some problems as well.
P.S. During a network installation you might get a 1603 error, usually “Error 1603” is linked to a Windows permission issue but also can be linked to a 1406. (I ran into this issue while installing our network license at the office) If you cannot install the network license, the computer your installing it on could also be affected by the Macromedia flash.
