    Office 2007 won't install

    Just installed Win7 on my main work machine.
    Added it to the domain.

    Tried to install office 2007, it fails with error 1237 Invalid drive (N:\)
    Which is my network home area.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have admin rights to access the C:\ drive ?

    best bet would have to installed it prior to joining the domain. Not something I have come across. I take it the N: reference that you are an RM CC3/CC4 network? There has to be something in the main .msi which keeps referring to C:\windows\user\docs and the pc is now set to N:\ blah etc (could be the templates,local settings etc). I know that RM charge you for a CC3/CC4 ready package (200 I was told.) and that the package creation tools they sell to create your own packages do not cut the mustard

    200?

    Try setting up a new share on your server, then create a new admin installation of Office 2010. You may as well include Service Pack 1, then try installing it across your workstations.

    I'd go with Michael's suggestion in this case.

    That's weird because it's working fine on my end. I did install on two computers too.

    Thanks guys.

    I had a problem with another bit of software too so did some more general googling and it seems it's to do with the user's shell folders. i changed them in the registry to all be local and the installs worked fine. i've then changed them back to N:\
    Awkward but i've exported a copy of each set of reg settings, so i can switch relatively easily.
