Unable to install software on XP Pro system , error 1327 invalid D:\

Experts,

  I have a user with Windows XP Pro laptop and one HDD partitioned in 2. One partition is the C: drive and the second is P: Drive. The user can't install any software , he gets error 1327 Invalid drive D. I have gone under computer management and try changed the P drive to D but it doesn't allow me to. When we tried to install any software we change C to D or P to D but nothing works. Any help to get this resolved asap will be great.

Are these msi-based programs that cannot be installed - or all types?

I think your solution is in changing the drive P to drive D, you are not being allowed because there are some dependancies on drive P, Look for the sawp file, this might be in drive P so if you change the swap file destination to drive C and then try renaming the drive P to drive D - it should allow that, and this could be the solution to your problem
