    What the heck? Invalid Drive E:\
    In response to another post (yes, I'm just too anxious to respond with the answer that I couldnt' wait for sufficient priv's to reply with the answer) regarding installing JDK and getting an invalid drive error..

    - my My Documents is mapped to h:\ at the office
    - I have my laptop with my unplugged from the network (so no H)
    - I have to authenticate locally to the workstation

    For some reason, H: (my home directory) is still embedded in some madness somewhere. I found no way around it, so I mapped a new H to my local machine:
    - right click My Computer, select Map Network Drives
    - Select the bogus drive letter giving problems
    - Map to \\ComputerName\c$ (the drive doesn't need to be shared)
    - Run installer again-- voilą!

    Hope this helps!

    P.S. Admins, please feel free to move this post to that other thread or whatever you think is necessary to close the gap. I realize it's an old question, but it must be a recent enough topic if I couldn't find a response elsewhere in the top 10 Google hits.
