I FINALLY finished writing my AU Power to the Parcel session handout this evening. Just in time to submit it before today’s deadline. With another AU deadline behind me I can shift my focus back to this my blog.
A number of my users have really embraced the Civil 3D Hydraflow Extensions. After making a countless number of installations I finally came across my first real installation error. Just after starting the install I was confronted with the error “Error 1327. Invalid Drive During Installation.
I’ll be honest, this one took a little research on my part (hence why I am sharing this story in the first place). Frankly, I’m still not necessarily sure what’s really going on here, but I was finally able to find an Autodesk knowledge base article outlining a solution.
In this case the installation was looking for an E-drive (which this machine was obviously lacking). After finding the knowledge base article the solution was simple:
- Start > Run, enter CMD to open Command Line
- At the command line type SUBST Drive Letter: c:\temp (replace Drive Letter with the drive shown in the error. ex SUBST e: c:\temp)
- Re-run the Hydraflow installation
