Windows 2003 universal forwarder install failure


I've been working on this for two days. I have an older Windows 2003 web server that I would like to forward IIS log files from. I have installed the universal forwarder 6.1.0 numerous times. Each time it fails with "Splunk Installer was unable to launch Splunk's First Time Run. Error Code: 128" complete error is listed below.

Any ideas?

Event Type: Error
Event Source: SplunkUniversalForwarderInstaller
Event Category: None
Event ID: 334
Date: 5/11/2014
Time: 11:51:15 AM
Computer: MID-SOUTH
The description for Event ID ( 334 ) in Source ( SplunkUniversalForwarderInstaller ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Splunk Installer was unable to launch Splunk's First Time Run.

Error Code: 128.
