Dear User,

This error mostly happens because of User Access Control (UAC) settings.

Particularly on some windows vista and 7 versions

To fix this,

Right click on the setup.exe file and select run as administrator. If this requires a password provide your Administrator password

You can also log in to your windows using an Administrator account and try installing it from there.

Thank you

Hello Steven,

This is a common error in msi installer packages. As mentioned in the above answer you need to give administrator privileges when installing. However you may have a problem where you can't right click on the msi file. If you encounter any problem trying the previous method, do the following,

Go to start and then Run,

Then type cmd, don't press enter.

In the search results right click on the "Command Prompt " select "Run as Administrator"

In the Command Prompt type msiexec /i <path to msi file>

Then carry on with the installation.
