  • What context are you running the installer under? Does it have access to H:\ mapping?

Chances are the mapped drive is mapped to the local user context; since the agent executes against local system account there may be a priveleges issue. Does it work if you supply the full UNC path?

I always recommend using full UNC, and maybe even IP's in command lines; why? It can't go wrong if I run it from a station that has fiddled with their H: mappings.
