Can't install Design Pattern Framework 4.0 C#
When I click the msi it says "Could not access network location \\epdatadep\debusers$\begin\\DoFactory Paterns 4.0 CS." There is no ini, nor does it prompt for an install location. How do you install it? Notice the extra \ between begin and DoFactory.

We solved the problem for Dean and Wayne, but I wanted to post the solution for everyone else's benefit:
This is a know install problem related to an incorrect registry entry and having a mapped network share on your machine.
The issue is inside the MSI installer and is outside our control.
Fortunately, Glenn Long, one of our users, posted a workaround/solution:
1. Open a CMD Window
2. Execute using your own path:
C:\> msiexec /i "Design Pattern Framework 4.0 CS.msi" TARGETDIR="C:\Personal\Design Pattern Framework 4.0 CS"
Simple adjust the MSI filename and TARGETDIR to your needs.
Hope this is helpful.
