PIA wont install for office 2007 (outlook business contact manager)

I am trying to get Microsoft's Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager to install in a Windows 7 Professional (x64) environment. I am getting the error: "Microsoft Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies -- Error 1316. Setup cannot read from file C:\OTKBCMENURTL\OFFICE\o2007pia.msi.  Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive.    For other potential solutions to this problem, see SETUP.CHM."

I did these things and have gotten nowhere at all. I copied the setup from the DVD to my HD; made sure that I am logged in as administrator on the box; I even tried using the "compatibility" mode. I downloaded and installed .Net 1.1 b/c I read that this PIA needed it...

I need an answer quick, so 500 points gleefully given for your help!

Well, crap - I got it figured out - The DVD has the PIA files named wrong and in the wrong folder... Once I downloaded the o2007pia.msi into the C:\OTKBCMENURTL\OFFICE\ folder - IT WORKS! The DVD has the file renamed PIARedist.msi and is in the C:\OTKBCMENURTL\OUTLOOK\ folder.

Crappy installer!

Thanks anyway guys!
