Cannot install ActivePerl.msi on XP pro

I can't install ActivePerl.msi on XP Pro. it gives the following error:

The folder path "My Documents" contains an invalid character

I'm using version 5.8.8 build 822, but I already tried 5.10.0 build 1002.

right click on start
click explore
right click My Documents ( should be near the top )
click Properties

What is shown in the Target folder location path box ?

...drive1$\Home\pt101875\My Documents

I think that the problem is the '$' character.

thank you for your help.
