Install program from mapped drive
Posted on 2009-07-03
I've working with a small network. 2 PC's that are both Vista home premium 64-bit. I'm trying to install a program from a mapped drive. I've got the drive mapped properly, there are no problems with permissions. When I run the install, (m:\install\setup.exe) I can select the various options, then tell it to install. Once it starts the install, it errors out saying invalid path. It then shows the UNC name, instead of just the drive letter. The knowledge base for the program I'm trying to install (Amicus Attorney 5) says it's a problem of the drive mapping; like you're trying to run the install without having a drive mapped.
Is this a Vista issue, or is it a problem with the installer? The installer won't complete because of the UNC path instead of the drive letter...
