I have heard horror stories. FIrst try installing it in compatibility mode.
(right click the installer>properties>compatibility>Chose older OS

The in your computer supports virtual XP mode that is a workaround

Well, if it doesnt work you need to either use XP mode or switch to a newer product like Visual studio 2008 or visual studio 2010 etc.
