Try using the UNC instead of the mapped drive; i.e.

Yep knew that; sorry for the "old" phrasing :-)

And that's what is puzzling me too. I'm pretty sure it has to do with
the concatenated environment variables (%documents...)

The only thing I can think off is as the local user they are authorized
to their folder on H:\ (i.e. H:\USERS\"user") and not (obviously) the
Root of H: and that is apparently where the software is trying to write

One is software related to our business from a supplier and the other is
a printer installation from HP!

Talking to the first was fruitless and HP is even worse. I'll keep
digging because I've GOT to get this figured out as we continue to roll
Windows 7 out.

Documents: The aforementioned "Users" folder is a major difference from
XP... There really isn't a "Documents and Settings" or "Program Files"
folder anymore--what you see of them are virtual representations for
compatibility. I've seen this cause issues with the installation of
older software, which expects there to be a real folder set there. I'm
a bit confused as to why software you are installing complains about the

location of the user's documents folder. As long as H is available, it
shouldn't matter if it's local or remote...unless...are you installing
as administrator? If the administrator you are running it as doesn't
have access to H--even though the plain user *does*--then that may
provide you with an error. So, you may want to check the admin's
authority, or run as someone with both local admin authority and access
to H.

Icons: There's a slider on the right-hand side of Windows Explorer that
let's you pick the view mode. There's some play in it, in that you can
control the icon size a bit without sliding it far enough to pick a
different view.
