Thanks for your help.  That wasn't it, but I did figure out what it was.  Had to turn off the wireless.  Seems intuitive but would think it could install anyway, or give a human message telling you "hey, turn off your wireless and we'll continue".  "Error 1606" doesn't tell anyone anyway, clearly written by techheads.

 

Thanks again.

I thought Verizon customer service staff monitored these forums.  You guys don't know either?

 

I've used this progam before and am not a computer novice. This program, though, simply will not install and gives me that error.  I'm going to need to cancel this if I can't get it to work but really need it.  Perhaps another wireless supplier will have a program that will work.

Hi,

I think I found an answer.  If you are using Microsoft Windows, the error has to do with administrative controls.  When you click to install the VZAcess manager on your computer, right click on the installation file and click Install as administrator.  That might do the trick.
