Subject: Cannot install strawberry perl 64-bit 5.18.2.2 windows 7

After trying to run the installer, I see: "Computing space requirements", and a pop up appears: "Invalid Drive: C:\" I have no C: drive on my system. Has the C: volume letter been hardcoded in the installer, instead of using %SystemDrive% environment variable? Or %ProgramFiles% or some other legal method of discovering which volumes actually exist, rather than badly assuming C:?

Could you please try strawberry 5.20.0.1 MSI installer? It was redesigned and should hanlde your scenario. Show quoted text

We are using WiX toolkit for creating MSI installer and it is not that straghtforward as you suggest. However as mentioned above we have changed MSI guts in 5.20.x series in hope to fix this kind of failures. -- kmx
