Hello,

Recently users (including me) can't even install a program without getting the error "invalid drive Z:"
Each user has a virtual netowork home path which is Z: which is set via active directory.
The only think I can come up with is that the application data is being redirected possibly through GPO?  I'm really not sure though.
I've checked all GPO's however and none of them have this configured.  It's really killing me because I can't even install SQL without an error.

I can install it locally on some things but then other domain users cannot access it, or gets errors when doing so.

It's just really quite strange and I erally need help with this one please.

Thanks

Have you run a "resulting Set of Policies" for an affected client/user? Either with

gpresult /v

or with

gpmc.msc
