problem installing software from mapped drive

According to other sites I've seen many others have had the same problems with other programs. I'm trying to install a program on a company computer. The setup files are located on the mapped network drive (on a server). When I try to run the setup it says something like "This application must be installed to a location specified by a drive letter and directory. It cannot be installed to a UNC path. It appears that \\servername\programs\blah does not contain a drive letter. If you browsed to the location usinga Network Neighboorhod please retry using a mapped drive letter."
The program will run the installation if setup files are copied to the computer running vista, however it won't run properly unless it's run from the networked location.

Any help?
