Using a windows XP machine with no C:\ drive (main HDD D:\), I tried to run strawberry-perl-5.12.0.1.msi. I immediately got the error: "Invalid Drive: C:\" and after clicking OK "Strawberry Perl Setup Wizard ended prematurely" The workaround is to install from .zip and use the relocate script and setup the PATH and TERM environment variables by hand as detailed int he README.

I attempted to install Strawberry Perl using strawberry-perl-5.12.1.0.msi downloaded from http://strawberryperl.com/. When running the installer, I was presented with an error popup right away: "Invalid Drive: C:\". The installer then jumped to an abort dialog with the heading "Strawberry Perl Setup Wizard ended prematurely", essentially just informing me that the installer failed due to an error and my system has not been modified (pretty normal stuff). The truth is that I don't have a C: on this machine. It's actually a virtual machine running Windows XP SP3 in VirtualBox. Long story short, I had a virtual disk containing Windows 7 attached to the VM when I installed XP, and for whatever silly^WSTUPID reason Windows XP decided to make the Windows 7 virtual disk C: (actually, it was the Win7 recovery partition, but you get the idea). I've subsequently deleted the WIndows 7 VM/virtual disk because they didn't perform adequately and weren't useful any more. In any case, my %SystemDrive% is F: and there is normally no C:. To work around the problem, I have to map a network drive to C: so that the installer doesn't abort. Then I can choose which drive to install to. It's still a bug and mapping a new C: isn't always an easy task so it would be good to fix it. I hope I'm not reporting an already-reported bug. I tried searching the Web and rt.cpan.org, but didn't find any relevant results. Thank you. (Interestingly enough, the last time that I checked the AVG Free Anti-Virus installer suffered from the same bug/assumption) -- Brandon McCaig <bamccaig@gmail.com> V zrna gur orfg jvgu jung V fnl.

I'm afraid I no longer own such a machine. I'm using OS X and linux these days...

I am afraid that I too have moved on to a different environment and no longer have that VM available. /o\ I made an attempt to override the system drive letter of a Windows XP VM I had, but unfortunately that VM now fails to boot. :P Probably because all of the paths in the registry are now invalid. Yay Windows. I can't think of any other way to test this, aside from installing a new system with enough devices added to coerce a different drive letter being chosen for Windows. I'm not exactly sure what would be needed and probably don't have the time or energy right now anyway.
