Hi,
This could be happening if IsUninst.exe is corrupted on a particular machine. IsUninst.exe is the InstallShield uninstallation file, and when it's corrupted it might appear to be in use even though it's not showing up as a process that is running in Task Manager.

Delete all instances of IsUninst.exe from the %systemroot% directory and run setup again.
