It could be that the SHFBROOT environment variable isn't being found after installation.  You may need to reboot for it to take effect.

No, its not that.

The SHFBROOT is ok, i have checkt it. The Error is still the same. My Workmate has the same problem.

I have found the Problem! Its the same problem like

This happens when the folder "My Documents" is mapped to a network drive.

Unfortunally I can't work with the unmapped "My Documents" because the Administrator wont to have it mapped.

Will this problem be fixed?

I haven't had a chance to look into it yet but once I do, if I can find the cause and it is fixable, it will be.
