Right-click on the installer and select Properties. Go to Compatibilty tab and select under Compatibility Mode: Run this program as: Windows Vista.

Try with XP too, or without anything checked at all.
One of the settings should work.

Tip:

Try using winrar or something to manually extract the contents of the package to a folder. Then enter that folder and find the setup executable, and any other executables in that folder that the setup.exe might call. Change compatibility mode to those too, and try running the extracted setup.exe again.

Install WinRar, (check that it has all file associations checked) then right-click the install package-> Extract to folder...
