Error 1327: Invalid Drive During Sequence Installation

Description

You receive the following error message when installing Sequence.

Cause

During Sequence installation, you selected to store database files in a drive for which the installing server does not have a matching drive letter. This is a known limitation of InstallShield.

Affected Versions

All versions.

Solution

There are two solutions to this issue.

Solution 1

Create a network drive with the same letter as the drive in which you are installing the Sequence database files on your SQL server, and map it to the root of that drive on the SQL server.
Example:
If you are installing the database files on your SQL server's H: drive, map a network drive called H: to H$ of your SQL server.

Solution 2

Use scripts to install the database, not the Sequence installer.
