1327 - Invalid Drive: [2]

All directories listed in the "Directory" table are validated whether they are required or not.

MAKEMSI only adds directories like "personal" or "My Pictures" if your msi requires them, however other tools typically don't do this, so if a user has a fault with their machine's (or user profile's) configuration then this may cause the install to abort! For the same reasons an install under the "local system" account can fail because these may not be set up.

Sometimes folders such as "My Pictures" may also point to mapped drives, these may not be available at the time of installation.

To test for non-standard drives that you do expect to be available to your end users have a look at the "Z: Available?" tip.
