Has anyone had any problems installing CS3 onto a 64 bit installation of Vista? I'm installing from the hard drive.
What a nightmare.
Event logs say:
Product: Adobe Setup -- Error 1327.Invalid Drive: P:\
I'm hunting through Google at the moment but thought I'd ask here as well to see if anyone has ideas.

Spot on and thanks.
I'd removed the drives that I had mapped but totally forgot that I had also redirected the MyMusic and MyDocuments to those mapped drives as well. Once those mappings were removed the software installed without any issues.
Drives remapped and everythng works great.
Another problem you will have when installing CS3 on the 64-bit editions of Windows Vista or 7 is you will get prompted to locate AdobePDF.dll when installing Adobe Acrobat 8. More info here and here.
There is an unsupported fix too (Source).
I think you can also integrate the latest patch for Acrobat (currently v8.1.3) into the CS3 deployment folder to fix this issue.The AdobePDF printer will function if you MANUALLY extract the AdobePDF.dll (the DLL file that is associated to the PDF printer) and place it on your desktop and tell your Setup that is requesting the file to browse and point to the desktop ---
The location of the DLL file is required is within the Data1.cab and it will be named 'AdobePDF.dll_64' (DO NOT USE THE AdobePDF.DLL that is there, that is a 32-bit driver), copy the '64' file to your desktop and rename it to AdobePDF.dll
Possible locations of install cab files
Start>Run> %temp% > Acrobat 8 Professional (or standard) > data1.cab
X:\Acrobat 8 Professional (or standard) > data1.cab
Rant: Adobe really need to get their act together with the Creative Suite installers. They are a joke. I have spent literally weeks of my life trying to deploy their software and am fed up dealing with this crap. Sorry for the rant but their software drives me mad.
