Hi,
I've been trying to install Adobe Photoshop on my Dell computer (Windows XP Home Edition software) and keep getting an error message. The message is: Error: D:/ is not accessible. Incorrect Function
Any help would be appreciated!
Regards,
TennesseeSwede

Is D:/ your recovery/restore partition? Pay very close attention to where things are being installed-if D:/ is the restore partition and Adobe is trying to install something on it, that's why you're getting the error. Is this a legit copy of the software that's giving this error? Where are you installing from (CD, hard drive) and do you have standard drive designations or not? If not, what are they?

It should install to C:/programs if it is a legit installation unless you direct it otherwise

It is due to partition of your hard drive it will not showing D drive that's why this error occurs. You should format your D drive then try to install it. It will definitely installed.

Why on earth would you even think of suggesting a destructive solution such as this ? You dont know whether D is a partition , a local disk drive , a USB storage device or a card reader on a connected printer . Heck , it could even be a CD drive . How can you assure the user that the program will definitely instal and did you not consider mentioning in your post that all data would be lost on formatting , if it is the case that D is a storage disk ? Please explain your reasoning as I'm always looking to learn , like most members here .

My apologies to the other posters on this thread but it really irks me to see people offer up destructive suggestions without clear reason !
