Microsoft Infopath 2010 Installation Error

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -



When I tried to upgrade my Office 2003 to Office 2010 Professional Edition in one of our XP machine I got the following error message:

"Microsoft Office Professional 2010(TEchnical Preview) encountered an error during setup. Error 1327. Invalid Drive F:"

Even though with this error Office 2010 got installed. I thought that the error occurred due to lower versions of office installed on my PC.

I even tried by upgrading only Infopath 2010 but got the similar error.



Error 1327. Invalid Drive F:"

Setup failed. Rolling back changes………………….

Hello James,

This is a known issue and it is caused due to an incorrect value in the data field of a registry key. To fix this you will need to get access to the Registry Editor, find the registry key and edit it so that its value is right. Here are the steps to follow from Microsoft's support centre:–invalid-drive-error-message-when-you-try-to?fr=1
