Camtasia (Windows): Error 1327: Invalid Drive Error When Installing

Problem

During installation, this message appears:
"Error 1327: Invalid Drive error when installing"

Solution

     

This error message refers to the U Drive, but this may vary.

This behavior occurs when a registry key contains an incorrect value in the Data field. To modify these changes, follow the steps below:

   

Modifications to the Windows registry, if not done correctly, can cause serious problems to a Windows system. Be sure to backup your registry before making changes.

  1. Press Windows+R on your keyboard to open the Run window.
  2. Type the following and click OK: regedit
  3. Locate the following registry key in the Registry Editor:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
  4. Right-click the entry and select Modify under the Data column.
         

    Skip this step if the values on your drive are correct.

  5. Type the correct drive letter in Value data and click OK. For example, if one of the values is "X:\Documents and Settings\Administrator", the drive letter should be changed to a valid drive on the system, such as “C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator".
  6. Repeat step 4 for each entry whose Data value contains an incorrect drive.
  7. Repeat steps 3-5 for each of the following registry keys:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
  8. Close the Registry Editor and run the installation again
