Error 1327.Invalid Drive: [drive letter] while installing or updating Adobe Acrobat

Another in the long list of annoying Adobe issues is the “Error 1327.Invalid Drive: [drive letter] while installing or updating Adobe Acrobat” error.  It comes up when installing Adobe Acrobat 9 or Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 or X on Windows 7 Enterprise on machines with mapped network drives.  It may also come up with other versions of Windows 7.  I don’t know if it’s an issue on machines with multiple physical or logical drives (E, F, G, etc.).

It has not been a major issue for me because I have found that installing with the local admin profile which doesn’t map drives works.  I don’t know what happens if it tries to auto-update on the profiles with mapped drives.  Users aren’t permitted to update software, so it shouldn’t be an issue there.  I also suspect that this won’t be an issue if you dump software using a tool.

Adobe has a KB article about it here.
