Guys I'm trying to install VEEAM Backup & Recovery for VMs on a 2008 R2 box.  I'm getting an error after I start the program "Windows Installer"  Error opening installation log file.  Verify that the specified log file location exists and is writable.  

I'm installing from a mounted ISO.  I've cleaned the temp folder of any trace of the software.  I've also tried to use the Windows Installation Cleanup Tool and VEEAM was not found in the list of installed programs.
