One member offers this advice, "This error is mostly because of the reason that the path of My Documents folder of the current user's profile is pointing to a location which is not accessable. Resolution could be to either switch to a user which has an accessable My Document folder or repair/reconfigure the path of My Document folder of the current user to some local disk's folder"

A specific case I ran into was the message "Could not access location 0.". This occured to me when I, by mistake, defined a Property with the same name as a Directory (INSTALLDIR, for example). Apparently MSI first searches through all properties and then moves on to Directories, so it latched onto the property INSTALLDIR instead of the directory, and the address was 0.
