    Windows XP shows error 1327 on uninstalling programs from Control Panel

    As I need to uninstall some programs from my PC running on Windows XP, I clicked “Add/Remove Programs” under Control Panel and did the further proceedings. But, I am getting the error message “Error 1327.Invalid Drive E:” just after that. If I press the ‘OK’ button along with the message, I would get the message saying “Fatal error during installation”. What has to be done for fixing up this issue?

    Hit the ‘Start’ button and select ‘Run’ option from the start menu. Type regedit into the field appears on the screen afterwards. You can then view ‘Registry Editor’ window on the screen. Navigate into HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\ Explorer\User Shell Folders from the left pane. Then, go through the entries displayed on the right pane and check whether any of them have F or other letters excluding C. If so, modify the data available to C:\. After that, make certain that it is possible to uninstall programs from Control Panel.

    Hi Friend
    Cause::

    This problem can occur if you use the Disk Administrator utility that is included in Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 to change the drive letter of the hard disk where the operating system is installed; for example, the C drive.

    The problem occurs because the Office Setup program uses registry keys to determine the locations of certain folders that are required to install Office. If the drive letter of the hard disk that contains the operating system is changed, the registry keys refer to nonexistent folders, and Setup fails.

    Solution::

    To resolve this problem, use the Windows NT Disk Administrator utility to restore the drive letter of the hard disk to its original value. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Disk Administrator.
    2. Right-click the drive whose letter you want to change. On the shortcut menu, click Assign Drive Letter.
    3. Select the correct drive letter from the list, and then click OK.

    If you are prompted to quit the Disk Administrator or to restart your computer, do so. After the computer restarts, run Office XP Setup again.

    Thank you.
