Have you tried this?

Set the Cryptographic Services to Automatic, and then try to install the program again. To set the Cryptographic Services to Automatic, follow these steps:
  1. Start the Administrative Tools utility in Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Services.
  3. Right-click Cryptographic Services, and then click Properties.
  4. Click Automatic for Startup type, and then click Start.

Is this a cross post of the Vista Forums issue, or is this another problem? Thanks!

In relation to this, as we can see from the dxerror.log, this is a corruption of the web installer cache. If necessary, we can clean this out, but first: Can you please ignore the error you received during the install of your game, and just see if the game works?

Thanks!

Please show Hidden Files and Folders: Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

Then try again. Make sure not to delete the DirectX folder, but the DirectX\WebSetup folder. It should be located in System32, but if it is still not visible, delete the one (remember - WebSetup only) from SysWOW64.

Turn off Hidden files when done.
