Have you performed an upgrade or a clean install? If you haven't done a clean install, Nothing is installed yet so it won't add too much time to your problem.

Here's a useful tutorial on how to clean install from an upgrade disc.

Right click the installer of your software. Select properties, then the compatibility tab. Check the box I have pictured and run in XP mode.

Already done but not success. I believe this problem because the installer do not have permission to override file in system32.
