First you need to make sure you are installing with an administrator or equivalent account.

If you are, to see what's happening you need to run the msiexec program with the log to a file option. Something like this:

Open a cmd window running as administrator
enter the command:

msiexec.exe /i /L*v

Check the logfilename for errors.
