Invalid H drive installing VCenter Converter Standalone

This one made me pull my hairs, attempting to install VCenter Converter on client server and each time I try I get fallowing error and install never starts.

Error 1327.Invalid Drive: H:\". I click on OK and the installer quits.

I checked each partition and verified there is no H drive assigned to any of the partitions and also no mapping to any network resources with drive letter H


After banging empty head I figured out fallowing work around

Open CMD

  • mkdir install
  • subst h: C:\install

After this install will be happy and mystery with H drive designation will no longer stop you Crying face& I have no clue what made Windows think H drive was in use, but this work around might save you couple hairs (-:

Do you have a network mapped drive to H: or a redirected folder to a network drive H: This usually happens in the case where the install requires elevated permissions. You can also get around it by starting an elevated command prompt and mapping a drive to H:
