Default not able to install programs


I had to partitions on my PC, C and D.

I had to install linux and I completely formatted the D drive without uninstalling all the programs that I had installed on D.

Now I am only working with C.
When I try to install a program again I get this error:

Error 1327. Invalid drive D:\

Any ideas???

Nevermind I just found the asnwer

Since I didn't have the D drive I guess it was pointing to the D drive still...

This is the resolution

Changed Registry Values

1. Verify that the values under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders use valid drive letters.

2. If there are invalid drive letters, change them to point to valid drives.

3. Rebuild the release after making any modifications.
