Hi Shimshi,

check you access permissions for the system32 folder on your system. To do
1) go to the properties window of the system32 folder
2) click on the security tab
3) click on advanced
4) click on the effective permissions tab
5) click on the select button and select the account you are currently
logged on
6) click ok and check the list of effective permissions that the window
displays for your account. Make sure that the you have the file creation /
folder creation permissions.

If not, log on as administrator and run the installer again.

Hope it helps,
