Are you right clicking the .exe to Run as Adminstrator?

This can occur if remnants of the program are still installed. If so uninstall in Control Panel>Programs and Features, then do a search for its keyword to delete any files related to it.

Its a UBIsoft product after all... you need to work hard at it... that's how they ask you to show them how much you want to play the games they work very hard to bring you.

But seriously... where did you download the DLC file? It might have gotten corrupted and you may have to download it again? Perhaps there is a corruption with your Instashield.exe file and you may need to download a new file?

It seems you are not the only one having issues with that DLC... Error when trying to install Arctic strike DLC | Forums

Found what seem to be a simple solution but, run at your own risk... Pudding Lane

You can go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create a new Test account with Admin privileges to see if it will install as Admin. This would tell you if your account is corrupted causing the problem.

If so work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

The official UBI site is down more times than I can count, perhaps that is what is going on right now?

Also, as I stated before, your Instashield.exe might be corrupt as well, perhaps you need to download and install a fresh copy of it. I know I did that once with a game and I think it was a UBI game as well.

Did you try any of the other links I posted? all and all, we are just trying to help but if you don't tell us what is going on and just give us general answers, we can't help as best as you would want us to do so.

Once you encounter an Installshield rare error codes, creating a new account is not worth. You need to reinstall windows. I have a -5011 error in Installshield and never worked.
