That looks like an outdated tool, and Microsoft doesn't provide downloads anymore (if these use the same).

If you have a retail license than download from Microsoft Software Recovery (only exception)

However, you can try installing the tool to root of C,D,E etc. But I am not hopeful. (the error usually means you have a path with more than 255 chars(?)).
