installation issues - invalid drive (mind manager 8)

Hi

I've just started working for a new company and they provided me with an slightly older Mind Manager 8 license.

During the course of the installation I guess the setup routine wants to install something into my user profile. Being in a kind of corporate environment our user profiles are stored on central shares.

Mind Manager setup is giving me a "Invalid drive S:" error warning.

Has this issue been solved in a newer edition of Mind Manager or can I run the MSI version of the setup with additional parameters to circumvent this issue?


Thanks

In your case it is much better to start with a clean install.

If you have got the MindManager 8 license key I would try and download the software from the Mindjet site.

goto support =>mindmanager => select you region => goto downloads

Succes

Well this is in fact a fresh install. No Mindmanager 8 installed yet. And on trying to install I get the messages "invalid drive S:".

Now I've downloaded a Mindmanager 16 trial edition and I am still getting the same error. So my question is still valid: ..can I run the MSI version of the setup with additional parameters to circumvent this issue?

I guess as some point in the installation the setup wants to create a "My Maps" (?) directory in my windows user profile, but my profile is stored on a network share.

This could be related to this general MSI error: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/327763

There are Large Scale Deployment versions available of MindManager, which allow for more control as describe in this document (for MindManager 8): http://download.mindjet.com/static/pdf/us/largeScaleDeploymentGuide_mm8.pdf

I think it would be best to contact Mindjet about this, to receive the downloadlink for the Large Scale Deployment Kit for MindManager 8.
