    hi

    been having trouble installing apps since moving my documents folder to a
    mapped network drive - get the error message "invalid drive" while trying to
    install nero 7, adobe 8 and logitech 10.5 camera software. i think it's
    something to do with the temp folders not being where the installers expect
    them, but does anyone know a fix? it's a bit of a bummer having to log on as
    admin just to install an app you know is safe!

    cheers

  3. Have you also redirect your Favorites? I've seen many installer packages
    give this kind of error when My Documents or Favorites are re-located
    (re-directed) to a maped network drive. Happens in Windows XP as well.

    The workaround that usually works is to delete the drive mapping that the My
    Documents and Favorites is/are redirected to, do the install, then do the
    drive mapping again (if it is not done via a logon script).
