I am trying to install Office 2010 and I am getting this error:

Error 1327.Invalid Drive: H:

This is a valid drive on my machine (it's a network shared drive) so I don't see why it is saying that this is an invalid drive. I actually don't understand what it's trying to do on this drive as I'm doing a local install.

Any suggestions?

It sounds like you don't have permission to install an application on that network drive. The advice in the link that slhck still applies to Office 2010. – Ramhound Dec 1 '12 at 10:11
@Ramhound - I am not trying to install on that drive. It shows me installing to C:\Program Files – leora Dec 1 '12 at 14:52
@leora - WHy does it say `H:` then? – Ramhound Dec 2 '12 at 6:26
@Ramhound - I have no idea . . maybe there is some files that it installs on your personal folders but the install path for the app is definately C:\Program Files . . anyway, i figured out the issue, see below – leora Dec 3 '12 at 3:55

The link in the comment got to the right answer. I was running the install as administrator which didn't have the drive mapped so i had to

  1. Run cmd as administrator
  2. net use H: //[drivename]
  3. run install as administrator
