Invalid Drive on Software Install on a Win2003 Terminal Server

I have a Windows 2003 server with Terminal Services running and I cannot install software without my user drive mapped.  I am trying to install this software on the console through the appropriate Add/Remove Software window and I get Invalid Drive H:\ when I do this.  This software is to be used by everyone that connects to the Terminal Server, so nothing should be installed to the user folder.  When I do get it installed as a user another piece of software related to this one fails with the same error no matter if there is a user drive or not.  This is Urgent that I get this fixed.

I had a similar one, but with "C:desktop".

Try changing the value of the maximum registry size to 99MB and reboot to test.

That worked for me.

At a command prompt, type SUBST H: C:\

Until a better solution is found, it'll map an H: drive to the root of the C: drive and allow you to do what you need to do.

Thanks.  That got me farther than before.  This time I get an error that the file path is too long H:\Program Files.

Any suggestions?

I may try to instal the first program regularly and the second the way you suggest.  Otherwise, I am all out of other ideas.
