Mapped Drive Installation Problem!


Have searched the net for a solution but havent found one anyway heres my problem:

I have mapped a networked drive and called it x:\

I have created a program that installs to the X:\

The target directory is hardcoded, this works fine on XP machines but on W7 i get the error message' invalid drive x:\' i have all the permissions set accordingly, i can access the directory fine and add folders and files manually.

Hope someone canhelp with this its getting urgent now
