Invalid Drive: D:\ (when installing application)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Have an odd one here....
I'm trying to install a small program from work to operate hardware....

When I try to install it on my laptop, I can the following error "Invalid Drive: D:\"

Apparently the program has to be installed onto a D drive, I find this hard to believe.. any idea's how to get it installed onto c:??
It's also has a MSI file that spits out the same error message


Cheers

Hit Start, Run and type Regedit

Find the following HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows| CurrentVersion\ Explorer\User Shell Folders

In the right pane - see if these is any entries which has an D or any other alphabelts not C (your OP folder) modify data to C:\

Try if that fixes it. Otherwise you need to contact software vendor.

Cheers mate,
+ rep

I found that the "subst d: c:\temp" command did the trick.
