Hello:

At work, I have a Windows Vista machine with an "X" drive that points to our file server. I've moved "Documents", "Favorites", and "Desktop" to my folder in "X".

When installing Office 07 Pro Plus, I get the following error message "Invalid Drive "X". Then, you have to reboot.

On my second attempt at the install, I double checked all install options on all tabs. The installation directory was indeed on my hard drive. Still, I am getting this message and am unable to install Office.

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Magus

This problem may be occurring if your administrator has used the Disk Administrator Utility to change the Drive Letter.

Try the following and let me know:

1. Click Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Disk Administrator
2. Right-click the drive whose letter you want to change and Click Assign Drive Letter
3. Select the correct drive letter from the list

Actually, I am an administrator and this is not the case. I actually had several mapped drives, but "X" stood out because I had mapped my "Documents" folder to the "X" drive. In the end, I wound up disconnecting the drive, installing Office 07 Pro Plus, and finally reconnecting my "X" drive.

Still not sure what went on, but I did find that work around.

Thanks for the information.
