"Yeah. I wrote a script that will do that."

Can’t find %HOMESHARE%\Favorites\.

Posted on December 12th, 2011

I tried to update Adobe Reader using my domain based admin account for elevation, and got this installer error “Can’t Find %HOMESHARE%\Favorites\.”  To fix it I opened RegEdit, navigated to HKCU\Environment, and added a new expandable string value named HOMESHARE, and pointed it to the proper location.
