I have a script that installs a predefined set of Microsoft hotfixes on new systems that come through our shop.  I'm having an issue where I can not get any hotfix to install over a mapped drive.  If I copy the .msu files to a local drive and/or usb attached drive they install with no issues.  This occurs on multiple machines.


OS: Windows 7 Pro SP1 32bit (Note same error occurs on Win7 SP1 64 also when using the appropriate 64bit hf)


The error windows displays: Windows Update Standalone Installer: Installer encountered an error: 0x80070003. The system cannot find the path specified.


Event Log entry: Windows update could not be installed because of error 2147942403 "The system cannot find the path specified." (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "Z:\Documents\DV\OS_Hotfixes\Win7-2008\32bit\Windows7SP1\Windows6.1-KB2446710-x86.msu" ")


Any suggestions?
