I have a server server that's a DC, a terminal server and a exchange server.

I installed Office 2003 via add/remove programs (in order all users could access it). In regards to Outlook, word, etc  - I can open the applications with the administrator account I used to install it but when no other account that logs into the terminal server can open them, they receive the error   - Error 1327. Invalid Drive: H:/. When the outlook icon is clicked it attempts to install the application but then fails with the error message.


I have removed and re-installed it multiple times but the issues persists. I originally installed it from a network share that I disconnected. I thought this might be the issue but I copied the install files to the local server and installed it from there and the same problems occurred. The group 'domain users' has access to the install files.

Can someone advise how I can install outlook/word, etc to allow my terminal server users to access it?

Hi

Do you see outlook related errors in event viewer? Or something like redirected drives?

Sorry, i don't understand your comment. I have to install via add remove programs in order for all users to access the application.
