    I'm trying to install the newest mumble 1.2.3a. At the point it's about start
    installing, i get an error saying

    "Installations" is not a valid short file name" Any ideas how to fix it?

    Eh, what?
    No idea what that’s supposed to mean/be.

    Try redownloading the installer.
    Try installing a snapshot.

    Did you have problems with different installers up to now?
    Can you try to install a different program that uses msi install?

    I have tried redownloading multiple times, without any luck. I haven't had
    mumble until now. I'm pretty sure i can install other files.

    I also tried installing the snapshot version.. The "installations" folder used
    to be on my HDD, but i deleted it, and no longer exists. I tried looking it
    from the registry, but it wasn't there either.

    Now when i'm looking at the registry, it had some files in
    E:\Asennukset\Mumble, when my HDD is actually in J:\

    How is this possible?

    What was the Installations folder?
    The target folder you tried to install to?
    Or the folder the msi installer was placed in before running it?
    Or a temporary folder even?

    Well, depends on what E was/is … :)
    And what registry values you’re actually looking at.

    The MSI has default installation to C:\Program Files(x86)\Mumble

    Google has some suggestions on what might cause the issue (though none matches
    the error completely):

    • This issue may occur if you have reinstalled Mumble on a new drive after you moved or removed the drive in which Mumble was originally installed.
    • This might be caused by permission issues in one of the target locations

    For the first issue Microsoft has a tool that might fix that:
    http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall

    In the second case you should check permissions in the relevant locations.

    Good look with fixing this.

    Cheers.
