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?

Same error, an old win2003 server machine refuses to install universal forwarder 6.1.3 with the same error code 128.

Any clue about this issue?
