Quick Hitter: Installing Windows Embedded CE 6

During the installation of Windows Embedded CE 6, sometimes the installer displays a dialog box stating that it "Could not access network location [url]." An example of this is displayed in Image 1. Hitting the Retry button on the dialog may not have any effect at first. What appears to work when this occurs is to open Internet Explorer, type the url in the location bar and hit Enter. Hit the Cancel button on the File Download dialog. Then, go back to the installer dialog and hit the Retry button again. This time it should work fine.
