Maybe a permissions problem? Try installing with administrative privileges?

According the support knowledgebase, this can occur for the following reasons.

The error message "Error opening installation log file" appears:

This symptom occurs when you run the Setup program (with no Quiet mode switch), and you use a system environment variable for the log file location, as shown in the following example:
\\Server\Share\Setup.exe /l* "%TEMP%\LogFile.txt"

Are you running setup using any kind of parameters?
