Here is the fix:

2. Navigate to the following registry keys HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

3. The correct and default value for AppData should be: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming

4. It would be better to also check and correct the AppData Value for the below registry keys as well before we start the installation.

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\
