Verify the InstallTo path located in the Deploy.ini file on the server points to a valid location:

  1. Browse to the deploy folder
  2. Open the deploy.ini file in Notepad
  3. Ensure the the InstallTo= path exists on all workstations and does not contain any invalid characters. If the path does not exist, delete the path, but leave InstallTo= (this will allow workstation install to prompt for a path to choose when installing).
  4. Save the file
  5. Install the workstation

If the issue still occurs after performing these steps, then there may be invalid paths located in the Windows shell folder configuration.  To resolve this, you will need to review the shell folder configuration for the user/workstation.  Any invalid paths located in this configuration must be corrected to point to a valid and accessible location.  Note that this configuration can affect the behavior of other applications as well and that these errors may also appear when other applications utilize Windows installer.
