Is it possible that the network drive was in a "disconnected" state at that time? If that's the case, try connecting to the J:\ drive once and test the sotware installation.

We are currently running windows xp at work and have changed the "my
documents" for each user to point to there own private network areas (mapped
I have tried doing this with Vista however it says that Documents location
is J:\ however it is fact pointing to c:\users\persons_username\documents
When trying to change this in the registry, it then stops you installing
anything as you always get the same message "invalid drive mapping J:\".
Also why when opening "documents" do you have 2 or more with one in the top
left corner and 2 in the bottom left corner under the heading "folders".
