The server I am working with has an OS volume and a hardware-based RAID 5 data volume.

The hard drive of the OS volume with Server 2003 installed recently failed.

I replaced the drive and reinstalled 2003 but during the installation, my hardware-based RAID 5 data volume took the C drive letter and Windows assigned E to the new system volume.

We successfully reinstalled all software including ArchiOffice and after installation, I created a software-based mirror of the system volume.

Today (5 months later), we are trying to update the ArchiOffice software and the update is failing and we are being notified that ArchiOffice must be installed on C in order for the update to successfully install.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
