SCCM MSI: Could not access network location %APPDATA%\

A very frustrating error when installing the agent. All when you thought that the setup was running fine and easy (for~4000+ clients) some of them just don't get installed! 

So looking at the ccmsetup log, I found out this:

MSI: Could not access network location %APPDATA%\

Resolution, check the registry of each *sob* clients that we're left out. Here's the registry:  

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Look for "AppData" and change the value to " %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming"

That's it! Wait for the setup to reinitialize which is about 2 hours.
